Is it true or false? Cumulonimbus clouds are tall, dense clouds shaped like a block or anvil. They signal thunderstorms and also spawn tornadoes, as well as other violent weather effects such as hail and light.
It´s true! Cumulonimbus is a heavy cloud that make storms, thunderstorms, strong rain, hail, etc. It´s a vertical formation cloud! It´s the bigger in vertical formation!!
The cumulonimbus or cumulonimbus clouds are highly vertical, internally formed by a column of warm, moist air that rises in a rotating spiral. Its base is usually less than 2 km high while the summit can reach 15 to 20 km altitude. When they are fully developed they adopt an anvil shape with the point backwards with respect to the direction of the storm's displacement, that is, to leeward. These clouds usually produce intense rainfall and thunderstorms, especially when they are already fully developed
