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

A condensation funnel, or the beginning of a tornado, is a column or funnel growing from the base of a storm cloud towards the ground. It occurs when there are strong updrafts in the cloud. If the currents are strongly developed and the funnel touches the ground, it is called a tornado.
