Colloquially, the term cloudburst may be used to describe any sudden heavy, brief, and usually unforecast rainfall.Meteorologists say the rain fall rate equal to or greater than 100 mm (3.94 inches) per hour is a cloudburst.The associated convective cloud, can extend up to a height of 15 km above the ground.
