Caption: Timelapse footage of low clouds producing numerous microbursts, as shallow convection drops rain into the dry lower air mass. A microburst is an intense downward-moving parcel of cold air, often containing heavy rain. They can produce very strong winds and are a serious hazard to aircraft. Filmed in the USA in spring.
