The propagation of a one-off discharge containing water vapor and condensate in the atmosphere is considered in the three-dimensional formulation. The process is accompanied by mixing with the surrounding air and phase transitions. The evolution of the flow, concentration, and temperature fields is studied as a function of the initial discharge parameters (temperature and moisture content) and the surrounding air parameters.
