True to their ominous appearance,
mammatus clouds are often harbingers
of a coming storm or other extreme weather system.|
Typically composed primarily of ice,
they can extend for hundreds of miles in each direction
and individual formations can remain visibly static
for ten to fifteen minutes at a time.
While they may appear foreboding
they are merely the messengers
- appearing around, before or even after severe weather.
