how are thunderstorms created?
The soil is heated by the sun and the moisture from the soil or water evaporates and mixes with the layer of air above the ground, which is thereby heated. This warm and humid air becomes lighter, rises to the top and cools down again. The result is a cloud that increasingly develops into a thundercloud. Similar to an electric shock, an electric voltage is generated which is discharged in the form of lightning. The air in the so-called lightning channel heats up explosively, triggering a pressure wave. This moves at a speed of sound of about 333 meters per second and forms the thunder sound.
