Clouds and Weather Prediction
Weather use appropriate tools to measure temperature and precipitation use appropriate tools to measure temperature and precipitation match cloud type.
Weather Part 3 The Clouds.
Warm air is forced upwards Meets up with cold air Then both cool and condense around dust particles.
C LOUDS. WHAT IS A CLOUD? A collection of water droplets Why White? -They are white, because they reflect the color of the sun. Why Gray? – They are gray.
Clouds 2 nd Grade Frisco ISD. Cirrus Cirrus - Latin for "curl of hair". High, wispy, icy clouds. Usually very thin.
Clouds Clouds are classified by their shapes, elevation, and their associated weather conditions and patterns. Clouds that form from the condensation of.
What do clouds have to do with weather? What is it? - A measure of the amount of water vapor in the air.
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.
Analyze and interpret data from weather conditions, weather maps, satellites, and radar to predict local weather patterns and conditions.

Types of Clouds Learning Objective: Describe condensation and contrast different clouds by height and description.
Clouds and Precipitation. Cloud Naming Prefix indicates height – Cirro high, 5-13 km – Alto middle, 2-5 km – (none) low, 0-2 km Name for appearance.
Water in the Atmosphere. Key Terms to understand The Water Cycle Evaporation - Condensation – process by which molecules of water vapor in the air become.
Is a cloud just a cloud? Different types of clouds in the sky indicate different types of weather.
CLOUD FORMATION There are 3 things required for clouds to form:
A Look at Weather. Clouds Clouds help meteorologists make a weather forecast. Certain clouds show what weather will happen soon. Types of Clouds:
