Microbursts occur when a rush of rain cooled air collapses toward the ground from a parent thunderstorm, crashing to the ground and spreading out at speeds above 100 miles per hour. The microburst in this image, and in a related timelapse video shot by Bryan Snider from the vantage point of Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport.
