FC: CLOUDS | By: Lindsay and Maddie

1: Stratus Clouds: Clouds that form horizontally and have a uniform base. They are also flat and blurry. There colors can be from dark gray to white.

2: Cumulus - They are puffy clouds and look like floating cotton. The top of the cloud resembles a cauliflower. They grow upward and they are thunderstorm clouds.

3: Cumulo Nimbus- A cloud that produces precipitation. Usually the precipitation is Hail, Rain, Snow or Sleet. Because they are dense with water, they appear darker than other clouds. They are usually spread uniformly across the sky.

4: Cirrus Clouds - They are thin and wispy clouds. They are also made of ice crystals. Made of freezing water droplets. Also, these clouds occur when there is fair weather.

5: Strato Cumulus- They are large dark rounded mases. They have a lower altitude. They usually form in lines or waves.

6: Altocumulus Clouds - These clouds are usually white or grey. They are also normally in layers or in tiny patches. Bigger than cirocumulus and smaller than stratocumulus.

7: Altostratus Clouds - These clouds are usually between a mixture of blue and grey. Their color is lighter than Nimbostratus and darker than Cirrostratus.The sun can be seen through the altostratus clouds because they are thin.

8: Cirrocumulas - These clouds are one of the main clouds that are in the high-altitude groups. These clouds include tiny raindrops that are extremely cold and they usually form into a Cirrostratus. This process that it is going through, can make rain and snow.

9: Cirrostratus - They are thin clouds that are made out of ice crystals. They sometimes signal the beginning of a warm front. It also can be signs of precipitation.

10: Nimbostratus Clouds - They are dark and grey and they form vertically. They have a low altitude and a thickness of 2,000 meters. They are in the middle class latitudes.
