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 cloudsAs 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 cloudsThese 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 cloudsThese clouds can become Cumulonimbus clouds. These occur when a cold front moves through.
Photo by Herbert Campbell NOAA Central Library /NWSCUMULONIMBUS – are the towering clouds you see just before it rains. These are where the thunder storms form.

Types of Clouds What’s the Weather?.
Clouds Clouds are classified by their shapes, elevation, and their associated weather conditions and patterns. Clouds that form from the condensation of.
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.
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.
Water in the Atmosphere. Key Terms to understand The Water Cycle Evaporation - Condensation – process by which molecules of water vapor in the air become.

Clouds are collections of tiny ice crystals or water droplets. All air contains water vapor. When the air cools water vapor condenses. This condensed.
