A hydrodynamic model of the spread of an admixture is presented for the case of penetrating two-level convection (thermals below nonprecipitating cumuli). The following facts known from observations are explained qualitatively: turbidity of the convective lower 1-km layer of the atmosphere and penetration of water drop coagulation and condensation nuclei into the cloud layer.
