Weather Part 3 The Clouds
Clouds form when the air temperature cools and causes water vapor in the air to condense into tiny drops of water.
As you can see there are many different types of clouds. They form as high as 40,000 feet and as low as 1 foot.
There are three basic types of clouds, Cirrus, Stratus, and Cumulous.
CIRRUS CLOUDS - These high altitude clouds are made up of tiny ice crystals. These are wispy clouds.
Cirrus generally occur in fair weather and point in the direction of air movement at their elevation.
These clouds are called Stratus clouds. These are the gray clouds you see on rainy days.
STRATUS CLOUDS form a low layer of dark gray clouds, they form along warm fronts and can bring light rain or snow showers.
CUMULUS CLOUDS – These puffy cotton-ball clouds begin to form when water droplets condense at middle altitudes.
Cumulus clouds signify a change in the weather.
These clouds can become Cumulonimbus clouds. These occur when a cold front moves through.
CUMULONIMBUS – are the towering clouds you see just before it rains. These are where the thunder storms form. Photo by Herbert Campbell NOAA Central Library /NWS

Weather Vocabulary. The layer of air that surrounds our planet.
Clouds Types and Weather. Cloud Formation Formed when air is cooled and condensation occurs.
Chapter 7 Clouds A cloud is a collection of small water droplets or ice crystals suspended in the air, which forms when the warm air is cooled and condensation.

Weather: the present state of the atmosphere and the current conditions Factors that effect the weather: air pressure, wind, temperature, and humidity.
Cloud Types. What are clouds? A cloud is made up of tiny water droplets and/or ice crystals that has formed on a condensation nuclei! The air has reached.
All About Clouds!. How are clouds formed? Clouds are formed when warm air rises. This air expands and cools. Because cool air can’t hold as much water.
WEATHER AND CLIMATE. Where Weather Occurs Atmosphere (lowest layer of air that surrounds Earth) Troposphere: where most weather occurs (lowest layer)
Cloud Types. What are clouds? A cloud is made up of tiny water droplets and/or ice crystals, a snowflake is a collection of many ice crystals, and rain.
Clouds and Storms Lesson 1 – What are Clouds?. What is water vapor? Water in the form of gas that is invisible.
Clouds and Precipitation. Clouds Clouds are masses of tiny water droplets or ice crystals. There are different kinds of clouds. They can be classified.
CLOUDS. Cloud Formation As warm air cools, the amount of water vapor increases (humidity rises). When the air is saturated with water vapor tiny water.
Chapter 7 Weather The condition of the atmosphere at a certain time and place. is affected by the amount of water in the air. Water in liquid, solid, and.
Clouds and Weather Prediction. Learner Expectations Grade 5 –Atmosphere: Conditions/Data/Predict The learner will be able to predict weather conditions.
Julianna Hagood. Standard 3 Students will develop an understanding of their environment. Objective 2 Observe and describe weather. Observe and describe.
Ch Water in the Atmosphere Objectives: What are some ways in which water condenses? How do clouds form? What are major cloud types? What are the.
Clouds and Precipitation Weather. How Do Clouds Form? Clouds are made up of tiny water droplets or ice crystals. The air is filled with water vapor. When.

Clouds. How Clouds Form Clouds form when water vapor in the air becomes liquid water or ice crystals. As air cools, the amount of water vapor it can hold.
Clouds Grade 2. What is a Cloud? A cloud is made from tiny water droplets and/or ice crystals. Snowflakes are made from a collection of many ice crystals.
Clouds are collections of tiny ice crystals or water droplets. All air contains water vapor. When the air cools water vapor condenses. This condensed.
Cloud Notes. Cirrus High elevations High elevations Feathery/ wispy with ice crystals Feathery/ wispy with ice crystals Fair weather Fair weather.
These are large puffy clouds that tower on one another and bring rain.
Air and Weather p. D Ingredients of Weather Air Air Wind Wind Moisture Moisture.
WATER IN THE ATMOSPHERE Coulter. HUMIDITY Humidity is a measure of the amount of water vapor in the air. Relative humidity is the percentage of water.
Up in the clouds …. How are clouds formed? Warm moist air rises because it is less dense. As it rises it cools and becomes more dense so it can’t hold.
Weather Weathering the Weather Whether the weather be fine Or whether the weather be not Whether the weather be cold Or whether the weather be hot We’ll.
Clouds and Precipitation. Clouds Form as warm air is forced upward, expands, and cools. Billions of tiny droplets of water and dust form a cloud. 3 main.
Check your cloud chart to be sure you have the information correct: Cirrus: description—thin, wispy (curly) shaped clouds high altitudes; indicates.
Clouds are classified by their shapes, elevation, and their associated weather conditions and patterns. Clouds that form from the condensation of water.
Compare daily and seasonal changes in weather conditions (including wind speed and direction, precipitation, and temperature).
The Water Cycle By: Mrs. Rios. What are clouds? - A cloud is a collection of tiny water drops or ice crystals in the air. - - Precipitation falls from.
When water vapor in the air becomes liquid water or ice crystals. How do clouds form?

CLOUDS. Clouds Clouds can help us predict weather. Each type of cloud forms in its own way and brings us a certain type of weather.
Clouds In Our Sky 4 th Grade Science. Cumulus Clouds Means “heap” Big, puffy, fluffy clouds Fair weather clouds.
Cloud Formations Sunlight causes water to evaporate into the atmosphere. The air now contains the water vapor and is heated at the surface of the Earth.
Humidity Water in the Air. Humidity is: A measure of the amount of water in the air Water is added to the air by the process of EVAPORATION.
