Can you name these clouds?
Mammatus clouds were spotted in Regina and Moose Jaw Tuesday evening
People living in southern Saskatchewan saw quite the sight in the sky Tuesday.
"Mammatus clouds are basically sinking pockets of air saturated with water droplets and ice crystals," says Gerald Cheng, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. "You usually see them after thunderstorms."
Mammatocumulus, meaning "mammary cloud," is the meteorological term applied to the pouches. They are easily recognizable because they look like bubbles.
The Weather Network's newsroom was flooded with photos of the clouds Tuesday night and into Wednesday, especially from the Regina and Moose Jaw areas. You can find more by visiting our Gallery
