Swampflower is correct

Mammatus clouds: Low-hanging clouds with large rounded bumps hanging down.
Michael Geib caught these mammatus clouds from Akron, Ohio, on July 20, 2022. Thank you, Michael!
Mammatus clouds: Ominous and beautiful
Mammatus clouds are pouch-like protrusions hanging from the undersides of clouds. You’ll usually find them under thunderstorm anvil clouds. But you might see them under other types of clouds as well. They’re composed primarily of ices and groups of them can extend hundreds of miles in any direction. But they’re fleeting, remaining visible in your local sky for perhaps 10 or 15 minutes at a time.

People associate these cloud pouches with severe weather. And it’s true; they typically appear around, before or after a storm.

Most clouds are formed by rising air. But mammatus clouds are interesting in part because they’re formed by sinking air. You sometimes hear people say that mammatus clouds continue extending downward and can even form tornados, but that’s not true.

They appear ominous. And they do signify storms. But, in a way that’s so common in nature, their dangerous aspect goes hand in hand with a magnificent beauty. [/quote]

Those type of clouds usually preceded a strong storm here in Oklahoma. Saw them one day for hours and the widest tornado on record, an F-5 monster hit the Yukon area on interstate 40 later on killing a meteorologist from the Weather Channel. Happened a few years ago

@TryingtoLava We had two microburst storms here. Thought we’d go to the bigger casino because the sky went from like this to absolutely ominous. Got stuck in traffic on the highway and didn’t even make it to the interstate to get to the casino. We ended up going to another casino east of the city and watched as two separate micro-burst storms blew sideways rain, they can be very destructive to fences, roofs, carports etc.

@TryingtoLava they should be called the testis clouds, because they form under the main clouds.
