It is created due to an electrical discharge of electricity among water droplets and ice in the clouds.

Those thunder activity clouds are called Cumulo Nimbus they stretched vertically to the extent of 16Kms height. In that sheet of cloud they produce static electricity which finally moves cations and anions when they clash each the lightening occurs with a huge sound called thunder.

Lightning is caused by water falling through different clouds, building up a electrical difference

or in other words

It is created due to an electrical discharge of electricity among water droplets and ice in the clouds..!!

Lightning can start in regions of thunderstorms that have relatively low electric fields and, so, should create no sparks. Because lightning obviously is made by thunderstorms, scientists are left wondering what they are missing.
Three such scientists, Joseph Dwyer and Hamid Rassoul from Florida Tech and Martin Uman from the University of Florida developed a new technique to remotely measure thunderstorm electric fields on the ground.
By measuring small radio pulses made by cosmic-rays passing through these storms, they calculate that they can reconstruct the electric fields along the high-energy particle's paths. This could allow them to measure any lightning initiation pockets that might exist.
One idea is that thunderstorms generate big electric fields capable of making sparks, but those strong fields are localized in very small pocketstoo small to be easily detected by the balloons and aircraft sent into thunderclouds to measure the fields. Although this seems reasonable, the pr ...more

Two piece of cloud clash with each other although the sound is created first but we see the lightening first because the speed of light is more that speed of sound
