Amazing Thunderstorm Over Kansas

The scientist has captured one of the most magnificent footage of super cell storm forming over the sky. In the super storm, you see a massive of raining, lightning, and clouds circling round and round. This is just amazing and rare event for all place, it exists only at the region with serious condition of climate. The scientists who work for climate change try to collect the information relate to this kind of thunderstorm to study in order to find the real reason which can cause such serious storm on earth that will help them know in advance of this natural phenomenon absolutely happens at any edge of the world. Further more, the scenery this kind of storm is so frightened with a serious condition of skies come along with strong wind, raining, lightning and circling of black clouds but it also gives another wonderful view of the skies which set the earth as another planet.

A thunderstorm, also known as an electrical storm, a lightning storm, or a thundershower, is a type of storm characterized by the presence of lightning and its acoustic effect on the Earth’s atmosphere known as thunder.Thunderstorms occur in association with a type of cloud known as a cumulonimbus. They are usually accompanied by strong winds, heavy rain and sometimes snow, sleet, hail, or, in contrast, no precipitation at all. Thunderstorms may line up in a series or rain band, known as a squall line. Strong or severe thunderstorms may rotate, known as super cells. While most thunderstorms move with the mean wind flow through the layer of the troposphere that they occupy, vertical wind shear causes a deviation in their course at a right angle to the wind shear direction.

Thunderstorms result from the rapid upward movement of warm, moist air. They can occur inside warm, moist air masses and at fronts. As the warm, moist air moves upward, it cools, condenses, and forms cumulonimbus clouds that can reach heights of over 20 km (12.45 miles). As the rising air reaches its dew point, water droplets and ice form and begin falling the long distance through the clouds towards the Earth’s surface. As the droplets fall, they collide with other droplets and become larger. The falling droplets create a downdraft of cold air and moisture that spreads out at the Earth’s surface, causing the strong winds commonly associated with thunderstorms, and occasionally fog.
