Cirrus Clouds Above 6000 m Means “curly” ice crystals
Cirrus Sunlight passes through easily
Cirrocumulus Form before or after a snowfall or rainfall.
Cirrostratus Halo appearance around sun or moon. Bending of light rays as they pass through the ice crystals. May thicken and lower to turn into altostratus clouds.
StratusClouds Means “sheet-like” or “layered” low clouds Form when warm, moist air lies below a layer of cold air. Often block out sun. Cover large areas.
Nimbostratus Nimbo means “rain” Bring heavy rains or snow.
Cumulus Means “piled” or “heaped.” Form due to warm, moist air rises and cools. Height of cummulus depends on speed of upward movement and moisture in the air.
Cumulus Lots of moisture rises.
Billowing Cumulus Will develop into a cumulonimbus cloud.
Cumulonimbus Thunderhead Rain Lightning Thunder
Fog Low level stratus cloud. Radiation fog or “ground fog.
Steam Fog Fog over James River. Land on other side of bridge, no fog. Forms near lakes or rivers where cool air meets warm water.
Upslope fog Forms when air cools as it rises along landslopes.
Advection Fog Warm moist air goes over cool land.
Cloud Formation cloud a collection of small water droplets or ice crystals suspended in the air, which forms when the air is cooled and condensation occurs.
Clouds Cloud Formation Condensation - water vapor gathers and forms water droplets or ice crystals (deposition) 1) Warm air rises taking along vapor,
Clouds Why is the sky blue? "White" sunlight enters the atmosphere molecules in the air are just the right size to scatter light from the blue end of.
Unit 4-2: Clouds. Fog – A cloud on the ground When the air at the surface becomes cooled below the dew point, water vapor condenses. When the air at the.
What is a cloud? How do clouds form? How are clouds named?

Water, The Atmosphere, and You. The Changing Forms of Water Water is the only substance on earth to naturally exist as a solid, liquid, and gas –Evaporation.
Clouds and Weather Predictions
Earth Science Hook. Clouds How do Clouds Form? In order for clouds to form you need the following: – Low Pressure – Relatively “humid” air – Condensation.
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.
Clouds 6th Grade Science.
Low Altitude Clouds Form below 2000 meters. Forms when warm, moist air rises, expands and cools. Made of water droplets only! There are 5 different.

Clouds and the Water cycle
Clouds General Information Cloud types (Low, Medium & High) Special Clouds.
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. * Form of condensation * Visible chunks of small water droplets or ice crystals * Good indicators of what’s going on in the atmosphere.
Clouds Amber and James. How are clouds formed? Clouds form by condensation. The sun heats the earth and the air above it. This warmer air will rise.
Why does it rain? (think back to work on the water cycle.)
CLOUD FORMATION There are 3 things required for clouds to form:
Types of Clouds What’s the Weather?.
Cloud Notes. Cirrus High elevations High elevations Feathery/ wispy with ice crystals Feathery/ wispy with ice crystals Fair weather Fair weather.
1.) Clouds are made up of tiny water droplets or: a.) snow droplets b.) ice crystals c.) sleet particles.
Types of Clouds What’s the Weather?. Cirrus, Cirrocumulus and Cirrostratus (high ,000 m) thin and often wispy composed of ice crystals that.
Types of Clouds QUIZ.
Cloud Terminology Cumulus = heap Stratus = layer Cirrus = curl of hair Nimbus = rain Prefixes Cirr = high; Alto = mid-level.
5.04 Clouds and Fog References: FTGU pages , 147
Clouds. What are clouds? A cloud is a large collection of very tiny droplets of water or ice crystals. The droplets are so small and light that they.
Unit 4 Lesson 2 Clouds and Cloud Formation
Mr. Deakin - CLOUDS terms, naming, and types.
Cirrus Clouds : feathery, light, usually composed of Ice crystals High altitude where it is usually very dry and cold.
Revised and edited by Tracy Sikes, Mount Bethel Elementary.
Cloud Formation. What Are Clouds A consequence of the evaporation of water followed by condensation of water droplets during the water cycle.
Humidity and Clouds WATER is the most important GAS for understanding weather!
Cloud Presentation By: Brandon Bond. Basic Cloud Types Cumulus – Puffy, white clouds with flat bottoms Stratus – Form in layers Cirrus – Thin, feathery,
Clouds and Weather Prediction
Clouds… They have names?. There are 3 General Types of Clouds Cirrus Stratus Cumulus.

Ch. 18: “Moisture, Clouds, and Precipitation”
Clouds are made of tiny bits of water and ice that would be invisible if they were viewed individually (they are 100 times smaller than a raindrop)
The notes that CLOUD your mind Chapter 5 Clouds Visible aggregates of minute droplets of liquid water or tiny crystals of ice. Tell us what is going.
Check your cloud chart to be sure you have the information correct: Cirrus: description—thin, wispy (curly) shaped clouds high altitudes; indicates.
