EVERYTHING ABOUT CLOUDS!
Transcript of EVERYTHING ABOUT CLOUDS!
Clouds contain tiny droplets of water.
The droplets are so small and light that sometimes they can float in the air.
When water gets absorbed into clouds, from lakes and oceans it is called evaporation.
The heat of the sun changes water into gas then the gas moves up to the sky and when gas is cooled it changes into liquid and that process is called condensation.
So the clouds keeps holding the water droplets until its too full.
Once the clouds cant hold anymore absorbed water droplets it rains.
WHAT IS A STRATUS CLOUD?
Nimbostratus clouds form a dark gray,wet looking cloud layer
Nimbostratus clouds continuously fall rain or snow.
Stratuscumulus clouds are puffy and gray.
Most form in rows with blue sky seen in between them.
Rain rarely occurs with stratocumulus clouds, but they can turn into nimbostratus clouds.
ARE CIRRUS CLOUDS?
Cirrus clouds are made of ice and are thin clouds.
Cirrus clouds are usually white
When you see cirrus clouds, it usually tells that a change in the weather will happen within 24 hours.
Cirrostratus clouds are thin, high clouds that often cover the entire sky.
They are so thin that the sun and moon can be seen through them.
Cirrostratus clouds usually come 1 day or half a day before a rain or snow storm.
Cirrocumulus clouds appear as small, rounded white puffs that appear in long rows.
The small ripples in the cirrocumulus clouds sometime resemble the scales of a fish.
Cirrocumulus clouds are usually seen in the winter and indicate fair, but cold weather. In tropical regions, they may indicate an approaching hurricane.
WHAT ARE CIRRUS
WHAT IS A
Cumulus clouds are white, puffy clouds that look like pieces of floating cotton.
Cumulus clouds are often called "fair-weather clouds".
The base of each cloud is flat and the top of each cloud has rounded towers.
High winds can flatten the top of the cloud into an anvil-like shape.
Cumulonimbus clouds are thunderstorm clouds.
Cumulonimbus clouds are associated with heavy rain, snow, hail, lightning and even tornadoes.
The anvil usually points in the direction the storm is moving.
There are different kinds of clouds called stratus, cirrus and cumulus.
These clouds have smaller parts too.
These clouds have a different height, looks different in the sky and also different effect.
Some produce drizzle, some produce thunder, heavy rain and etc.
WHAT ARE THOSE puffy things high up in the sky?
anvil- a round shape that looks like a tornado
Stratus clouds are grey and often cover the entire sky.
Stratus clouds look like fog but they actually are not.
The most rain stratus clouds can produce is drizzle.
CLOUDS, HIGH UP IN THE SKY!
We cant touch them,
It is like a stem,
Grows rain in the sky,
Up in the sky where birds fly,
Lives those puffy things which
makes the sky bling.
