Weird cloud formation ...

... just rolled down the Patapsco River into the Bay. Followed by a 10 degree drop in temps and some rain.

Thats a beautiful pic. It looks like you caught all kinds of weather with one click. Rain,fog ,clouds,sunshine & probably some lightning thrown in the middle of it somewhere,too!

Wow. Pretty amazing. Some sort of cold front. Did the rain come before or after the cold air or at the same time. Did you happen to watch your barometer?

Very cool photo (yeah, I know, that was a very bad pun!). It's neat how the clouds sort of funnel right down to the water level. That's one of those once in a lifetime photos. Good job.

It's been weird all day. Pouring rain then bright hot sunshine then fog and clouds and cold followed by rain then sunshine again! I was out walking the dog and didn't notice the barometer as this passed through. Right now it's 29.50" and falling.

I wish I had a real camera with me at the time, the pic was from my phone.

I think that is a bow echo front, if it included brief high winds near the center of the front.

Nice photo..funny thing is, if you poke around the net a little there are a frightening number of people who attribute those types of formations to Harp, Chemtrails, and other weather manipulation conspiracies...it is fascinating...
