Lightning is a sudden, violent flash of electricity between a cloud and the ground, or from cloud
to cloud.
A lightning flash, or bolt, can be several miles long. It is so hot, with an average
temperature of 34,000 Centigrade that makes the air around it suddenly expand with a loud
blast. This is the thunder we hear. Lightning occurs in hot, wet storms. Moist air is driven up to
great height. It forms a type of cloud called cumolo nimbus. When the cloud rises high enough,
the moisture freezes. And then ice crystals and snowflakes are formed. These begin to fall,
turning to rain on the way down. This rain meets more moist air rising, and it is the friction
between them which produces static electricity. When a cloud is fully charged with this
electricity, it discharges as a lighting flash.
