Wall Cloud


As the thunderstorm intensifies, the updraft draws in low-level air from the precipitation area. This rain-cooled air is of high relative humidity, and this moist air quickly condenses to form a wall cloud. However, some even exhibit cyclonic rotation, and these often develop into tornadoes, which is also known as lowering of the cloud.
