Clouds!!!. Rache l and Mariah. How do clouds form. Clouds form when warm air raises and cools. The left over water vapor then has no where to go so it becomes cloud droplets and forms a cloud. The cloud either re-evaporates or forms precipitation.

Cumulus : are cauliflower-shaped low level clouds with dark bases and bright tops. When observing cumulus, you are actually observing the condensation process of rising thermals or air bubbles at a certain level in the atmosphere known as the condensation level.
are low clouds that generally move faster than cumulus. They tend to spread more horizontally rather than vertically. Like cumulus, the bases of stratocumulus are normally darker than the tops.
Defined as low cloud that appears fragmented and thin. It can also occur in the form of a layer or sheet. The sun, moon and generally the sky can usually be observed through stratus clouds. Stratus lacks the vertical growth of cumulus and stratocumulus, and therefore lacks the contrast.
