What cloud is it?

stratus
cumulus
cumulonimbus
cirrostratus
Cu­mu­lonim­bus, from the Latin cumulus ("storm cloud"), is a dense, towering vertical cloud as­so­ci­at­ed with thun­der­storms and at­mo­spher­ic in­sta­bil­i­ty, forming from water vapor carried by powerful upward air cur­rents. If observed during a storm, these clouds may be referred to as thun­der­head­s. Cu­mu­lonim­bus can form alone, in clus­ter­s, or along cold front squall lines. These clouds are capable of pro­duc­ing light­ning and other dan­ger­ous severe weather, such as tor­na­does.
