Caption: Timelapse footage of cumulonimbus thunderclouds forming along the high plains dry line. These developing storms are triggered by dry (denser) air moving into the moist, unstable southerly airflow in the plains. The undercutting dry air lifts the moist air, forming large clouds. Filmed in Colorado, USA, in summer.
