The meteorologically assigned cloud type associated with the thunderstorm is

the cumulonimbus. The thunderstorms are usually accompanied by strong winds, heavy rain and sometimes snow, sleet, hail, or no precipitation at all. Those that cause hail to fall are called hailstorms. Tunderstorms may line up in a series or rainband, known as squall line. Strong or severe thunderstorms may rotate, known as supercells. While most thunderstorms move with the mean wind flow through the layer of the troposphere that they occupy vertical wind shear causes a deviation in their course at a right angle to the wind shear direction. The thunderstorms result from the rapid upward movement of warm, moist air. They can occur inside warm, moist air masses and at fronts. As the warm, moist air moves upward, it cools condenses, and forms cumulonimbus clouds that can reach heights of over 20 km (12.45 miles). As the rising air reaches its dew point, water droplets and ice form and begin falling the long distance through the clouds towards the earths surface. As the droplets fall, they collide with other droplets and become larger. The falling droplets create a downdraft of air that spreads out at the earths surface and causes strong winds associated commonly with thunderstorms. 4. The text is mainly corcerned with . . . . a.
