And All About Them
have you ever wondered about clouds? what they are, where they come from, and what they do well if you have read on. P.S. they are not made of cotten.
What Are Clouds?
Clouds are groups of water vapor in the atmosphere. They create precipitation when they are saturated (full) and let go of the water. there are many kinds of clouds including Cirrus, Cumolonimbus, Cumulus, Stratus, and many more.
How Clouds Form and what happens next
Clouds form when water heats up and turns into water vapor, it rises into the atmosphere where it condenses with other groups of vapor and turns into a cloud. After that more and more condenses in that cloud and then it gets saturated, a word that here means full of water, then it lets go, and down falls precipitation, it can either be rain hail sleet or snow.
cumulus clouds are puffy fluffy and mostly mean good weather. they thrive from 1,500 to 6,000 meters up
stratus clouds are wispy grey layers that may mean rain or snow they hang in the air from 0 to 1,500 meters. they are the lowest clouds in the sky
fog s a cloud. it is a low hang blanket of water vapor over and on the ground
