Strange clouds seen as cold front brings fall back (photos & video)

Temperatures will be significantly cooler on Thursday, and the air will feel much less humid.

After Wednesday’s gusty storms and the passage of a cold front – the region is drying, and clearing out.

However, some interesting photos were captured yesterday while the cold front moved through the area.

Meteorologist Peter Hall explained that while the cloud formations “Appear to look like tornadoes or funnel clouds, these are most likely scud cloud formations and/or gust fronts that are rather harmless.” He added, “However, they make for a very eye-popping sight!”

More rain is expected to move into the area tonight, as temperatures remain cool throughout.
