Awesome Shelf Cloud in Sugarcreek from Storms this Evening

By Joe Ebner - New Philadelphia, Ohio | August 22, 2014

Some of our Facebook fans posted photos this evening of interesting cloud formations with the thunderstorms and rain showers that moved through Friday night.

The one that caught my eye tonight was a photo of a shelf cloud taken by Linda Raber.

Shelf clouds look menacing, but are actually harmless. They are usually found at the leading edge of a squall line and are formed at the boundary where cold air and moist warm air meet. The rain-chilled air in a thunderstorms descends and spreads laterally across the surface. The warm moist air is lifted at the leading edge – or gust front - of the rain-cooled air. When the warm moist air condences when it meets the colder air, you get a shelf cloud like this.

When the cloud passes, you get a wind shift followed by heavy rain and sometimes hail.

Shelf clouds are one of the most photographed thunderstorm clouds. Mainly because they look scary as heck.
