Mammatus clouds are the pouchlike lobes seen hanging from mid-to high-level clouds. They can look quite dramatic, but they are also interesting because they provide clues to what controls anvil cirrus dynamic evolution.

Here, an alternative explanation is proposed: radiative temperature contrastsdoi:10.1175/2010jas3513.1 fatcat:qcptpu3jdbbpjkvvozohna6d4e
