What's Falling From The Clouds ?
Piles of fluff
There are many different types of clouds. Some are gray some are white but they're all different. Some of the types of clouds are Cumulo, Cirro, Alto, Nimbus, and Stratus.
You probably don't know why they have weird names but they're actually Latin words. Latin is an extinct language but a lot of languages are based off of it.
What They Mean
The clouds names reflect what they look like,so lets find out what they really mean. Cumulo means pile, Cirro means curl, Alto means middle, Nimbus means rain, and Stratus means layered.
Precipitation is when ice crystals and water droplets form in clouds and fall to Earth in a form of water. The types of precipitation are rain, snow, sleet, and hail.
Sleet is forms when rain falls through a thick layer of very cold air and freezes before reaching the ground but isn't hail.
Cause And Effect
Precipitation can cause lots of damage to buildings hail can be the size of softballs,snow can make hard to drive, and rain can cause floods and all of this comes out of clouds.
Even though you can't see it a very complicated process goes on in a cloud wether it's rain,snow,sleet, or hail it all happens in a cloud.
