This picture was taken at 6:30pm Monday and is the underside of the anvil of a thundercloud. The "pouches" are Mammatus Clouds and form due to turbulence and sinking cold air. This is one of the thunderclouds that brought us small hail yesterday. I'm using the word thundercloud instead of thunderstorm because no lightning actually occurred (negative and positive charge separation within the cloud wasn't able to fully occur to allow for lightning - lighting occurs when the top portion of the cloud is filled with positive particle charges and the bottom is negative particle charges).
