What does a thunderstorm look like in weather 101?
Thunderstorms can look like tall heads of cauliflower or they can have “anvils.” An anvil is the flat cloud formation at the top of the storm. An anvil forms when the updraft (warm air rising) has reached a point where the surrounding air is about the same temperature or even warmer.
The thunderstorm enters the mature stage when the updraft continues to feed the storm, but precipitation begins to fall out of the storm, creating a downdraft (a column of air pushing downward). When the downdraft and rain-cooled air spreads out along the ground it forms a gust front, or a line of gusty winds.

Audio frequencies that hurt a dog’s ears can be damaging as well as uncomfortable, according to Psychology Today. Hearing loss in hunting dogs from being close to the sound of gunfire without ear protection has been well-documented since a 2002 study by the University of Mississippi.
