Wall Cloud

We just learned that a Tornado Family is multiple tornadoes in one storm.

Another type of weather is a Wall Cloud.

We learned a while back that a shelf cloud is a big cloud that is at the edge of a thunderstorm moving out.

A wall cloud looks a lot like a shelf cloud, but it is on the inside of the thunderstorm, not on the outside edge.
