Mammatus Clouds Over Wrigley Field

Mammatus, also known as mammatocumulus (meaning “mammary cloud”), is a meteorological term applied to a cellular pattern of pouches hanging underneath the base of a cloud. The name mammatus is derived from the Latin mamma (meaning “udder” or “breast”). The ominous-looking clouds actually signal severe weather in the distance, rather than overhead. [source]
