3: I Wonder: What are Cumulus clouds made of? Answer: They are made from droplets that have condensed at high altitudes due to the rising currents of warm moist air. (Weatherwhizkids.com)

7: I Wonders: What kind of weather can we predict if there are cirrus clouds present? Answer: Cirrus clouds are pretty common and they do not have any significant weather associated with them. (Williams, Diane 2000)
9: Altocumulus Cloud There are many clouds in the sky with very little breeze. The clouds look like white cotton puffs against a sky blue background. Quantitative Observations: cloud cover- 35% Dew Point: 1 degree Celsius Precipitation: 0 cm
10: I wonder: How high are altocumulus clouds in the sky? Answer: They are at least 2000 meters above the ground. They typically carry large amounts of moisture long distances at the height. (weatherwizkids.com)
12: Cirrus Cloud The clouds today are very flat and spread thinly across the atmosphere. There is almost no wind here, and the clouds look like they were whisked across the sky rather than dropped like a cumulus cloud. These clouds are very representative of cirrus clouds.
13: Quantitative Information: Wind speed: calm Precipitation: None Cloud Cover: 20 percent I wonder: How much of the sky is covered by cirrus clouds at a given time? Answer: Cirrus clouds can cover about 30-50 percent of the sky at any given time. (Miles, Elizabeth)
15: Cumulus Cloud There are very few clouds in the sky today. The cloud has a very bright, white color. The weather is very nice, although a little cool. The cloud easily fits within the definition of a cumulus cloud.
