Weather is cool. Have you ever seen these rare clouds? Some can be found right here in our backyard!
1. Cumulonimbus: These clouds are found daily in south Florida during the rainy season. They're enormous towering clouds that can reach anywhere from 20 to 75 thousand feet in altitude. You may hear them referred to as "mushroom" or "anvil" shaped clouds, and strong to severe weather is often associated with them. The name is derived from the Latin term cumulo, which means heap, and nimbus which means rain storm.
