Tail Cloud

Description

A Cauda, also known as a tail cloud, is another supplemental feature, which is seen off to the right of wall cloud, above, and it looks a bit like a dinosaur's tail trailing behind the storm. Caused by air flowing into the storm, its tube-like shape can sometimes be mistaken for a tornado.
