Anvil Cloud at Sunset: Regina, SK

Tonight, a stunning anvil cloud hovered over the north end of Regina, late evening until after sunset... and beyond?

These whirling cumulonimbus clouds can grow into ferocious single cell thunderstorms, the clouds that storm chasers love to follow. 

It's humid tonight, and at 10:14 p.m., Environment Canada was still calling a severe thunderstorm watch for the city, so this one may be growing or others may be moving in.
