Comments: Spectacular anvil heads of cumulonimbus display classic characteristics and tell a story, especially to pilots. Cumulonimbus develop from Cumulus as more latent heat is generated and grow into these enormous thunderheads. The anvil is created by high level winds stretching the cloud top out. This is a very important clue to pilots as the anvil head gives the prevailing wind direction, and more importantly from a safety not enter as it is as hard as an anvil!! It is from these overdeveloped cumulus clouds that rain occurs as well as hail, the typical summer thunderstorms which can be very violent with thunder and lighting. They have been recorded as reaching in excess of 40,000ft in height. Large aviation and weather stock.
