It is this large release of latent heat from condensing water vapor that powers thunderstorms.

Air parcels expand and cool as they move upward into lower ambient pressure, but the cooling can lead to phase changes for water vapor in the air. In deep moist convection, heat release during condensation—and, to a lesser extent, freezing—slows the cooling rate of the parcels as they continue upward.
