I have noticed a few times a pocket in a shelf cloud that begins to show intense lifting motions causing some cinnamon swirls in the base etc..... Also if a shelf is intense enough there are times it can become inflow dominant again and even become tornadic!

There is an amazing storm in chaseday.com that shows a huge shelf turning back into a massive wall cloud in the archives..... really cool
