Morning of Blackburn Challenge Breast Clouds

The morning of the Blackburn Challenge contestants and viewers of the race noticed some pretty weird clouds. Hard to capture in a camera, they looked a little like this photo taken from the wiki page describing mammatus clouds. Terry Weber posted at GMG about these mysterious clouds here.

“Mammatus” from the latin mamma for breast or udders. On race day the clouds were much larger in the breast category with cleavage compressed as small indentions. A cold front comes in, some wind shear occurs, and these large lumpy clouds start dropping from the sky.

Some clouds have a silver lining, on Cape Ann they sometimes appear to be double D cup.

    I don’t care what they are called, I love wild clouds! Too bad no one caught on film the clouds from the other day. We had them here in PA the past two days but they were pure white, Amazing!

    Love that photo you found Paul. That is so bizarre looking.

  3. Bodacious, Paul. Seriously.
    I wonder who came up with the post title?

    • Not positive because I was getting ready for the challenge but I think it was Joey who texted me about the clouds that morning having large nips. (Cold front, makes sense.)
