Rare Mammatus “Breast” Clouds

Mammatus, also known as mammatocumulus (meaning “mammary cloud” or “breast cloud”), is a meteorological term applied to a cellular pattern of pouches hanging underneath the base of a cloud. They are a rare example of clouds sinking in air, most form in rising air, and are associated with severe storms.







I saw these marshmallow skies at sunset over Toronto, Canada last night after the severe wind thunderstorm blew through. Trees were damaged and one huge tree had fallen on the path blocking it in the park.
These “Breast” clouds, probably named by a man, are seen with severe weather usually after a storm, but it is pretty hard to see during, for obvious apocalyptic type weather reasons.

These cloud formations were named Mammatus because some scientist said it looked like a cows udder. I thought they looked like marshmallows, I would have named them Marshmalltus.

If seen before a storm seek shelter immediately, some heavy weather and wind is coming your way. Although some people associate these clouds with tornadoes, it is not always the case. It was a wicked wind thunderstorm yesterday and some power lines and big trees came down as proof.
It is advised not to chase these types of storm clouds, so I’m sure lots more people will now.
It is fitting that these breast clouds showed themselves on the anniversary of the arrest of Gwen Jacob who changed the law and got topless rights for women. The goddess thanks you from the skies and so do a lot of men I’m sure. Thanks for the mammaries!!! May the Breast Cloud be with you always.
