I captured these images of what appears to be of a shelf cloud-like formation.
I am not saying it is a shelf cloud, but the formation is very intriguing.

extremely rare. I cannot remember the last time I actually saw a Day 7 outline.
On Saturday, a warm front looks to be positioned in an arching pattern from Kansas into Minnesota. This will bring up warm, humid air into the region. Again, we see a dry line in western Texas and a cold front soon behind. Judging by moisture transports in the lower levels of the atmosphere and hodograph forecasts, this could be a tornadic situation, especially how the isobars are tightly positioned together in the warm sector (area under the warm front).

Given the tight wind field along the warm front, and hodograph observations from the 6z GFS for this timeframe, this event is likely going to contain some intense supercells with some potential tornadic action.
