Presentation Transcript

Objective: 2/26/2013

List three types of cloud forms.

Intro

  • Write Q&A in notebook:

    • What do you think is happening when you exhale and see a “cloud” of breath in cold temperatures?



  • Water vapor needs a surface to condense on


  • Cloud


  • Cumulus clouds

  • Stratus clouds

  • Cirrus clouds

  • Form

  • Altitude


  • Puffy, white clouds with flat bottoms

  • Indicate fair weather

  • If they get very large, can form thunderstorms (cumulonimbus cloud)


  • Form in layers

  • Cover large areas of the sky and block out the Sun

  • Lower in altitude

  • Nimbostratus clouds – dark and rains continuously

  • Fog – stratus cloud on the ground


  • Thin, feathery, white clouds

  • Form at very high altitudes where winds are strong

  • Made of ice crystals

  • Indicate a change of weather is coming


  • When clouds become full of water, they release it as either:

    • Rain – liquid water falls to ground

    • Snow – water freezes into snowflakes that fall to ground

    • Sleet (flipchart)

    • Hail (flipchart)
