    Lightning is caused by the build up of electrostatic charge in clouds. One region within the cloud builds up a positive charge and the other a negative charge.but the bottom of the cloud usually ends up being negatively charged and the top positively charged

    the usual excuse is friction between things in motion, eg air and water vapour. but i think that in truth it is way more complicated. there's a whole chapter in this in the Feynman Lectures (attached).
