HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Many WAFF viewers spotted and snapped pictures of scary looking clouds Thursday morning as the strong thunderstorms rolled through.

These clouds are called shelf clouds and are usually associated with the leading edge of strong and severe thunderstorms.

While quite menacing, and often mistaken for wall clouds, they usually have no rotation within them and indicate gusty winds instead.

If you see weather where you are, snap a picture and email it to pix@waff.com or tweet it to @waff48.
