In coming solar radiation (insolation), heats water.
Heated water begins to evaporate and turns into water vapor and begins to rise.
Advection (horizontal movement of air and vapor) beings, and move across land.
As the water vapor continues to move over land (Advection) it begins to heat and dry out, causing lifting.
If there is enough lifting convection will being (strong vertical movement) of the now warm, dry air. As height increase the air cools and begins to condense creating clouds.
When enough convection is present clouds will continue to grow and eventually form Cumulus Nimbus.
