Caption: Cumulonimbus storm clouds. These clouds form when droplets of water condense out of rising columns of moist air. Their interiors are highly turbulent, with violent draughts of air rushing up and down. The energy and water that builds up in cumulonimbus clouds are released during a storm, when the clouds produce heavy downpours of rain and brilliant flashes of lightning.
