Ever wonder how raindrops form? Meteorologist Rick Katzfey answers your question on this episode of Weather 101.
Most rain drops form inside the cloud where turbulent updrafts blow cloud droplets into each other. As the droplets collide with each other they become bigger and bigger. Eventually the drops become large and heavy enough to overcome the force of the updraft and plummet towards the ground.
The larger the raindrops, the heavier the rain they produce. Large raindrops can cause downpours in the middle of rush hour slowing traffic down to a crawl by limiting the visibility.
Now you know more about how raindrops form. Feel free to send any weather-related questions to us at email@example.com.
Stay safe and healthy everyone!
