Remnants of a Baltimore tornado?

Originally uploaded by spam991

Earlier this evening, the National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for the city of Baltimore and much of the surrounding area. (A tornado warning means that a funnel cloud has been spotted or that local radar has picked up some sort of rotation in the atmosphere.) The warning expired without major incident at 5:30 pm.

A few minutes later, at 5:53 pm, I was on Pulaski Highway in the Rossville area of Baltimore, and spotted this curious-looking cloud to the southwest. It looked to me like a broken-off celery stalk.

Could this have been the remnants of a tornado that didn’t touch down?  Probably not, but it’s still a crazy-lookin’ cloud on a crazy weather day.
