Because of this, the Midwest has played, and continues to play, a large role in the understanding of thunderstorms and severe thunderstorms.

Much more than a book of "quick fixes," this practical guide Reviews: Thunderstorms are a great way for the atmosphere to release energy. When warm moist air meets colder drier air, the warm air rises, the water vapor condenses in the air, and forms a cloud.

As the water vapor condenses it releases heat, which is a form of energy. A large amount of the thunderstorm's. A major reason for this is the materials used for building construction.

Severe thunderstorms are defined as having sustained winds above 93 kilometers (58 miles) per hour or unusually large hail, and there are two key factors that fuel their formation: convective available potential energy (CAPE) and strong wind shear. CAPE is a measure of how much raw energy is available for storms; it relates to how warm, moist, and buoyant air is in a given area.
