Météo-France explains thunderstorms

As part of their “meteorological phenomena” series, Météo-France recently released a dossier on storms.

Météo-France explains what is a storm, how it is formed and how thunder and lightning are generated.

The dossier is in French only, unfortunately, but contains a lot of useful information on how storms are predicted and warnings are provided.

If you want to know more about what we see from space, read this article explaining the instruments that our satellites use to detect lightining.
