Caption: Timelapse footage of the characteristic cauliflower top of a towering cumulus cloud. This appearance is indicative of rapid growth due to convection of warm, moist air. If there is suitable atmospheric instability, the cloud will develop into a cumulonimbus thundercloud. Filmed in the USA on a summer afternoon.
