Tornado Look-Alikes

Most of us never see a tornado in our lives, so when storms move in, it isn't unusual for people to mistake non-tornado phenomena like scud (low, fast move clouds) for tornadoes. The National Weather Service has some great pictures of this that are extreme in nature. The photos look like they could possibly be tornadoes in the formation stage. In reality, they are scud that got pulled into a storm updraft. If you are a weather geek like me, check them out.
