A thunderstorm is a storm characterized by the presence of thunder and lightning.

Thunderstorm type of weather

A thunderstorm, also known as an electrical storm or a lightning storm, is a storm characterized by the presence of lightning and its acoustic effect on the Earth's atmosphere, known as thunder. Relatively weak thunderstorms are sometimes called thundershowers. Thunderstorms occur in a type of cloud known as a cumulonimbus. They are usually accompanied by strong winds, heavy rain, and sometimes snow, sleet, hail, or, in contrast, no precipitation at all. Thunderstorms may line up in a series or become a rainband, known as a squall line. Strong or severe thunderstorms include some of the most dangerous weather phenomena, including large hail, strong winds, and tornadoes. Some of the most persistent severe thunderstorms, known as supercells, rotate as do cyclones. While most thunderstorms move with the mean wind flow through the layer of the troposphere that they occupy, vertical wind shear sometimes causes a deviation in their course at a right angle to the wind shear direction.

Thunderstorm was a doom metal band from Bergamo, Italy. Formed in the early 1990s as a classic heavy metal band, with touches of a down tuned sound. During this early incarnation, they released two demos, Thunderstorm (1992) and Force of Evil (1994). In 1998, the band split up due to musical incompatibility issues between members. Their leader and vocalist Fabio "Thunder" Bellan met drummer Massimo Tironi and formed a new Thunderstorm band, this time geared the sound toward classic doom metal in style of Black Sabbath, Candlemass, and Trouble, and called themselves Sad Symphony. Joining the band soon after was bassist Omar Roncalli, after which the named was then switched back to the original moniker Thunderstorm, and a second guitarist, Sandro Mazzoleni, joined the band. In 1999, this line-up produced a demo called Sad Symphony, which generated interest among record labels, and the band was signed to Northwind Records.
