Transcript

  • 1. Weather Clouds and Precipitation
  • 2. There are 4 different types of precipitation rain sleet snow hail
  • 3. Rain Rain falls in large heavy drops. Cloud droplets are too tiny to fall to Earth. Other rain drops come from ice crystals that form in cold clouds. They melt as they fall closer to earth.
  • 4. Snow Snow falls from cold clouds when ice crystals stay frozen as they fall. The falling ice crystals join together to form snowflakes of different sizes.
  • 5. Sleet Sleet is frozen or partly frozen rain. Sleet forms when raindrops fall through a layer of very cold air near the ground.
  • 6. Hail Hail is precipitation in the form of ice balls or chunks of ice. Cumulonimbus clouds often produce hail.
