Can Anyone Help With This Question ?

Last Saturday (1st Oct at 8.30am) a large cloud was seen to be approaching from the west.

It was in the form of a long roller stretching from horizon to horizon. It appeared to be rolling over and over as it approached the village and when it reached us of course down came the rain.

You will see from the pictures that it was in a blue sky and was very low. Can anybody explain what was going on?

    Looks like a roll cloud, I haven’t looked at the synoptic charts, but I expect there was a cold front that came across.
