This Incredibly Rare Rain Bomb Falling From The Sky Looks Insane

News 529


So here’s something you rarely get to see… a freaking rain bomb, or the technical term “microburst“! Yeah… I’ve never heard of that term either, but it’s actually really a thing.

Basically, it happens when hot, dry air rises and mixes with heavy rain-bearing clouds.

Most of the water droplets in the clouds evaporate, causing a swift cooling of the air around them… it then starts to sink.

The falling air pulls the remaining raindrops with it, creating one hell of a downpour.

HOW AWESOME IS THIS?!
