Weather is a fascinating phenomenon, isn’t it? Just check out the incredible supercell thunderstorm that happened over Kansas.
This time-lapse taken by Stephen Locke shows the supercell form over Kansas skies right before a climax of lightning, rain, and clouds.
The average temperature of lightning is around 20000 °C (36000 °F) and the intense heat from lightning causes the surrounding air to rapidly expand and create a sonic wave that you hear as thunder.
What is happening inside the cloud is just as fascinating as what’s happening outside of the cloud. Check out the time-lapse below.
