High in the sky–large, roiling masses of condensed air; summer cloud formations form some of the most dramatic scenes in nature. Strong updrafts lifting currents of air cause water vapor to condense and form clouds. When there is fast, powerful convection caused by atmospheric instability 30,000 foot high clouds are formed, often growing directly upwards at speeds of 20 to 30 Miles per hour. Oftentimes signaling turbulence and powerful storms, the beauty is nonetheless appealing.
