A mighty morning shelf cloud rushed through Wisconsin on June 28. The stunning view was captured in several cities, including Milwaukee, Wisconsin, as it marched east. 

According to the AccuWeather weather glossary, a shelf cloud is ‘a low, horizontal wedge-shaped cloud, associated with a thunderstorm gust front.’ 

Shelf cloud formations are often mistaken for tornadoes or funnel clouds. They are normally an indication that a storm is approaching. 

Shelf clouds are low hanging, which makes them appear even larger to the eye. The clouds can even be found just a couple hundred feet above the ground.
