MONTESSORI ASTRONOMY : Types of Clouds - Cumulus



Types of Clouds : Cumulus


Cumulus

Altitude: Base below 2,000 m
Abbreviation: Cu
Appearance: Puffy 


  Cumulus clouds usually appear "puffy" or
"cotton-like." They usually form when warm air
rises and reaches a level of relatively cool air,
causing the moisture in the air to condense.
When they are small in size, they usually indicate
fair weather. However, they can grown into
cumulonimbus clouds which bring heavy rain,
lightning, strong winds, hail and even tornadoes.

Cumulus: (Latin) Heap
