What Are Clouds?

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.
