Clouds are classified by their altitude.
Cumulus Clouds These clouds look like fluffy, rounded piles of cotton.They from less than 2 km above the ground but can grow to reach as much as 18 km. Cumulus clouds usually indicate fair weather.
Stratus Clouds These clouds form in flat layers.Stratus clouds usually cover all or most of the sky. As stratus clouds thicken, they may produce drizzle, rain or snow.
Cirrus Clouds These clouds look wispy and feathery.\They form only at high levels where temperatures are very low. Cirrus clouds are made of ice crystals. They indicate a change in weather within 24 hours.
Stratocumulus- Flat and puffy
Nimbostratus- Stormy and Flat
Cumulonimbus- Puffy and stormy

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.
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.
