What Happens During a Lightning Storm?
Lightning is like a giant natural circuit breaker. When the balance in the atmosphere's natural electrical charge becomes overloaded, lightning is what flips nature's switch and restores the balance. These bolts of electricity, which emerge from clouds during thunderstorms, can be dramatic and deadly.
What Is a Dry Thunderstorm?
thunderstorm can be called "dry" when temperature and heat gather below the cloud cover, called the aerial canopy. It will rain, but the rain and other forms of precipitation never manage to reach the ground. The storm's rain and any moisture evaporate as they fall and near the earth. In meteorology, this event is called virga.
