The ominous-looking raincloud is a shelf cloud that usually appears on the edge of a storm.

The shelf cloud is usually attached to a parent cloud that can be a cumulonimbus, bringing about torrential downpour.

At around the same time, another Mothership reader managed to capture vivid lightning strikes.
