Precipitation is water released from clouds in the form of rain, freezing rain, sleet, snow, or hail. It is the primary connection in the water cycle that provides for the delivery of atmospheric water to the Earth. Most precipitation falls as rain.
The Earth's water supply is made up of: 97% oceans, 2% Icecaps/Glaciers, 1% Fresh Ground Water.
In 20 minutes, one thunderstorm can send down over 125,000,000 gallons of water!
