Clouds and Precipitation
What precipitation is going to fall from the clouds?
When you think about clouds you think puffy and soft but thats not what they are like except for cumulus clouds. They come in many different forms. Clouds can be in layers, or even look like big towers. Some you don't even see because they are see through. Fog is a cloud too! It is important to know what clouds they are so you can tell what weather is coming.

You have to know what clouds are in the sky to tell what precipitation is going to happen. Precipitation falls to Earth as water droplets, ice crystals, small ice cubes, or even softball or golfball sized ice!
