Cyclone Larry was formed when the sun heated up the air over the Coral sea which caused the air to quickly rise, creating points of low air pressure. The hot air then turned to moisture which was then absorbed by thunderclouds. Then, cold air quickly rushed to the spots left without warm air. It was these high winds that started cyclone Larry.
