Air is an insulator, i.e. current cannot readily flow through open air—the charge in the clouds must reach large values before it will arc across the air. So when the electrical potential builds up, small charges leak out from the negative areas and flow swiftly and invisibly through this insulating air, form conductive channels through which the current flows.
