Have you ever wondered how thunderstorms work? Here is one of the best educational videos on the formation of thunderstorms that clearly explain the process involvement for a thunderstorm to evolve. This also includes the formation of lightning.

Here is a fantastic video provided by Derek Owens who explains the physics of lightning interaction in thunderstorms. Derek also explains what target's potentially have a better chance of being struck and also how the science work's behind one of mother natures greatest forces.
