The Water Cycle

Types of Precipitation

Different types of precipitation are: Rain, Snow, Sleet, Freezing Rain, and Hail. Rain starts as ice crystals, but they melt as they fall through warmer air. When its cold outside the ice crystals can stay cold all the way down to the ground. This makes snow. Sleet obviously starts as ice crystals and then falls through a thin layer of warm air. After that, they fall through cold air for a longer period of time. They freeze before they hit the ground witch causes them to turn into sleet. As always, freezing rain starts as ice crystals. Then they go through a thick layer of warm air. When the ground is cold and the rain hits it, the rain becomes frozen and makes freezing rain. Last but not least, is hail. Hail is very different than the rest. It happens when a strong wind blows a rain drop back up to the cold air at the top of the cloud. This makes a tiny piece of ice. The ice repeats this process until the ice gets to heavy for the wind to blow back up.
