Has anyone seen this thread. These clouds have been seen all the way to the gulf coast.
When a radar transmits energy, part of it may be intercepted by targets on the ground, such as buildings, trees, cars, or other objects. The return signal from these objects is called "ground clutter". Ground clutter interferes with the detection of meteorological targets, such as raindrops, because ground targets are large and typically produce high reflectivity. Ground clutter can result even if the main radar beam is above ground targets because part of the energy radiated from the antenna is emitted off the beam axis in what are known as "sidelobes". Back-scattered energy from the sidelobes is interpreted by the radar processor to come from the main lobe, so ground targets hit by one of the sidelobes appear to a radar user in the same relative position in the main lobe.

Surely you must by now be considering the possibility that increased activity is HAARP-induced, as attested to by HAARP rings observable on Intellicast. Black Ops is a real possibility here, via the intentional, non-benign manufacturing of ELF waves.
