When cold and warm air meet aloft, it creates a thunderstorm. Hurricanes are formed off a tropical low. Conditions have to be right. Warm ocean, low winds and open waters.

The action of warm air rising and cold air sinking (convection) plays a key role in the formation of severe thunderstorms. If the warm surface air is forced to rise, it will continue to rise, because it is less dense than the surrounding air.
Two of the most important ingredients for thunderstorm formation are instability (unstable air) and moisture.
Storms are usually an interaction of wind weather and sun. The combination of warm and cold air crashing into each other produces storms.
