CUMULONIMBUS



Photos taken by myself from my garden last Sunday.


Cumulonimbus is a type of cloud that is tall, dense, and involved in thunderstorms and other intense weather. It is a result of atmospheric instability. These clouds can form alone, in clusters, or along a cold front in a squall line. They create lightning through the heart of the cloud. Cumulonimbus clouds form from cumulus clouds (namely from cumulus congestus) and can further develop into a supercell, a severe thunderstorm with special features.

Os Cumulonimbus são nuvens que se desenvolvem verticalmente até grandes altitudes, podendo chegar a mais de 15 mil metros. Têm a forma de montanhas, torres ou gigantescas couve-flores e são formadas por gotas d’água, cristais de gelo, gotas superesfriadas, flocos de neve e granizo. Há, em seu interior, violentas correntes de vento, ascendentes e descendentes. Todos os pilotos as temem e respeitam.

  20. Sonia, I sent you an email on Saturday with the shipping information about your calendar. Sounds like you may not have received it. The post office said it should be there in 5 - 10 business days. Hope you enjoy it.

  22. Lindas! Já ouvi por aí que as Cumulonimbus são como as mulheres, quanto mais bonitas mais perigosas!! Eu já não acho, quer dizer, sobre a questão das mulheres bonitas serem perigosas! (rs*) Beijus,

  25. I wonder if those clouds brought you a thuderstorm?

  26. Olá Sonia
    Gostei da comparação da Lumma sobre "mulheres bonitas e perigosas" e digo também que o pior é quando além de feia ela é perigosa completando aquele perfil de bruxa, rss
    As paisagens são lindíssimas com as nuvens, e observei que em 2 delas tem pássaros voando.
    Deejo um belo final de semana. Beijooo
