A thunderstorm is a storm with heavy rainfall accompanied by wind, thunder and lightning. These storms occur when air that is moist and close to the ground heats up and rises to form cumulonimbus clouds that produce precipitation. Electrical charges develop near the bottom of the clouds, resulting i

Thunderstorms are formed by the combination of three main ingredients: moisture, unstable atmospheric air and an external acting force making the damp and volatile air rise upward. Thunderstorms come in several different categories, which are orographic, air mass and frontal. They form above land an

Thunderstorms need three elements in order to form. One of these elements is moisture. The second element is rapidly rising, warm and unstable air. The third element is lifting, commonly produced from fronts and mountains.

Thunderstorms form when rapidly rising warm air brings moisture to higher parts of the atmosphere, then water vapor cools and condenses into droplets that fall to the Earth as rain. The process of rising warm air is called convection, which occurs when the atmosphere above the surface of the planet
