Change in the temp when no heat is added or taken away. This is called adiabatic temperature changes The wet adiabatic rate is always slower than the dry adiabatic rate
Elevated terrains such as mountains block . flowing air. The mountains act like big walls or barriers.
The boundary between colliding bodies of warm and cold air. this happens when cold air acts like a wall and blocks the warm air so the warm air rises.
Air lifting from air in the lower atmosphere.
This happens when unequal heating of the earths surface warms a pocket of air and lowers the airs density.
Stable conditions happen when air temperature increases in height. This is called temperature inversion.
The air above the ground particulate matter serve as surfaces for water vapor. The particulate matter is called condensation nuclei.
The 3 types of clouds are cirrus, cumulus, and stratus. Cirrus clouds are high white and thin. Cumulus clouds are flat base clouds look like rising domes or towers. Stratus clouds are sheets or layers that cover most of the sky
Made up of 3 clouds. Cirrus cirrostratus and cirrocumulus. All high clouds are thin and white and most of the time they are made of ice crystals.High clouds
The altocumulus cloud makes up the middle clouds. They form grayish sheets that cover the sky Light snow or drizzle may come from these cloudsMiddle clouds
The 3 low clouds are stratus stratocumulus and nimbostratus. The nimbostratus clouds are our main precipitation makers
Some clouds do not fit into the 3 height categories. They all are associated with unstable air
There are no physical differences between fog and clouds. Fog is defined as a cloud with its base low to the ground
It is cold precipitation that will freeze when it hits a solid object
When air is 100 percent saturated and 100 percent relative humidity many droplets form together to form a rain drop.
Rain is a liquid that falls from nimbostratus clouds Snow occurs when temperatures are around 4 degrees Celsius if its around -5 degrees Celsius the snow flakes join other flakes and form wet and heavy snow.
Sleet is the fall of small pieces of ice. Hail is bigger massive chunks of ice falling. Glaze is also know as freezing rain. Falling hail Tennis ball size hail Smashes car window
