Condensation funnel – what is it, how does this phenomenon arise?

A condensation funnel, or whirlwind germ, is a column or funnel rising from the base of a thundercloud towards the ground. It is formed when there are strong updrafts in the cloud. If the currents are strongly developed and the funnel touches the ground, it is said to be a whirlwind.
