Mammatus clouds

Brad Nelson is a meteorologist with 18 years of experience at the largest private sector weather company, DTN. He has been chasing storms regularly since 2007 and has seen incredible weather phenomena, including mammatus clouds and lightning. On a storm chasing day in Oklahoma, he encountered a severe thunderstorm with impressive structure and cloud to ground lightning. He was eventually treated to an incredible mammatus display after getting cut off from getting back north, which he described as a surreal experience.
