Thunderstorms in Jamul?
Thunderclouds and Thunderstorms Happen Often in Jamul
SERVPRO® of Spring Valley/Jamul has been mitigating storm damage for years in Jamul. San Diego County residents observe thunderclouds often due to our proximity to the Pacific Ocean, our mostly warm climate, and the moisture in the air. When there is warm, moist air near the ground, and cold air above, the warm air rises and pushes upward, creating the tall thunderstorm clouds. Here is some interesting information about thunderclouds and thunderstorms from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration:
- Thunderstorm clouds can rise up to 10 miles into the air!
- In a big thunderstorm cloud, there are now strong upward winds and downward winds happening at the same time. These are called updrafts and downdrafts.
- This is the most dangerous stage of the storm when tornadoes, hail, winds, and flooding can happen.
- Updrafts continue to fuel the storm with warm, moist air. But, once a storm runs out of updrafts, it starts to weaken.
- As a storm begins to slow down, the rain and wind become less intense.
- And by the end, all that’s left is a blue sky and an anvil-shaped cloud top.
