    Mammatus are most often associated with anvilclouds and also severe thunderstorms. They often extend from the base of a cumulonimbus, but may also be found under altocumulus, altostratus, stratocumulus, and cirrus clouds, as well as volcanic ash clouds.

    We're about 3km due west of the city. It was heading right for us and made a sudden left turn towards Bilpin. I've never seen them do that before.

    There’s only so many months of blue skies & only blue skies I can take without going skiing or to Tassie unless it rains here. And I’m on the limit, on the edge, i just might blow.
