In very general terms storms are cause by instability in the atmosphere. We all know warm air rises and cooler air therefore sinks. In any situation where you have cold air under warm air things are stable. When you have war air under cooler air you have a situation where the atmosphere is unstable, basically it wants to flip itself over so that the warm air is above the cold air.
