Document Title: Virga with rain curtains (DI00366)
Description: A cumulonimbus, or thunderstorm, cloud passes over the plains east of Denver. Thunderstorms form as the moisture in updrafts--rapidly rising, warm air--condenses into raindrops or hail, which begin to fall when the updrafts no longer have the energy to carry the heavy precipitation. If an updraft is extremely intense, the rain may be held within the cloud for an hour or more.
