Large anvil of an intense thunderstorm over eastern Emilia Romagna (near Ferrara), north Italy. Very unstable day with very warm and hot air at the ground level (temperature over 35 °C, dew point around 25 °C) and cold upper levels. The updraft has obviously reached the tropopause and is spreading into a large anvil – forming a Cumulonimbus capillatus incus.
