Orographic lifting is when an air mass is forced from a low elevation to a higher elevation as it moves over rising terrain. It is when air is forced to go with the terrain http://www.waterencyclopedia.com/Ce- Cr/Climate-Moderator-Water-as-a.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Orogra phic_lifting_of_the_air_-_NOAA.jpg
Front A front is a boundary between a cooling body mass of hot air and cold air. A frontal wedging is ware the cold air is in the fronthttp://www.windows2universe.org/earth/Atmospher e/tstorm/occl_front.html http://keithrogershome.com/Chap11Fronts.html
Convergence is the natural heating and culling of the surface. Hot air rises cold air sinks Hot air rises because it is less dens Cold air sinks because it is more dens http://clem.mscd.edu/~wagnerri/CloudDevel opment.htm
Localized convection is when hot air rises in a pocket of les dens air and snicks as more dens cold airhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convection
Stable air stays in its original position, wile unstable air rises the most stable conditions for the air is when air temperature actually increases with height it Is called a temperature inversion. http://www.airphotona.com/image.asp?imag eid=14226&catnum=0&keyword=&country= &state=&pagenum=556 http://www.targetarea.net/var05.html
For condensation to happen the air must be saturated to make dew, fog, or clouds When air is saturated the water vapor condensates on to dust witch is called condensation nucli.http://decorating.visitacasas.com/how-to- combat-condensation/
Clouds are classified on the basis of there form and height. Cirrus clouds are high White and thin. They can happen as patches or look like fluffy blankets in the sky. Cumulus clouds are single round cloud masses with a flat base and a appearance that seams like it is rising. Stratus clouds are the clouds that cover the sky completely with small or no brakes in it. With no individual cloud in it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:CirrusField-color.jpg http://www.usatoday.com/weather/wcumulus.htm http://urbanext.illinois.edu/kalani/18.cfm
The high clouds are called cirrocumulus cloud and there are three clouds that make up the high cloud they are the cirrus, cirrocumulus, and cirrostratus clouds. It is 6000m in the air All high clouds are thin and white and often made of ice crystals http://eo.ucar.edu/kids/sky/clouds3.htm
The middle clouds also known as the altocumulus cloud they can change there form in different conditions They are 2000, 6000 meters in the air They can be a Wight or gray with an infrequent light snow or drizzle mar accompany the cloudshttp://www.bigbranch.net/middle%20clouds.htm
There is three types of low clouds stratus, stratocumulus, and nimbostratus. The stratus cloud is a fog like layer that always cover the sky. When the cloud gets uneven it becomes an a stratocumulus cloud A nimbostratus cloud is the clouds that produce precipitation http://ed101.bu.edu/StudentDoc/current/ED101fa10/j enmks/stratus.html http://www.tariqweb.com/2011/03/04/stratocumulus- clouds/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:June_2005_dark_clo ud.jpg
Clouds that don’t fit in the three height categories The clouds with vertical development are filed with unstable air and all of them are related to another. They can also produce rain http://www.wbsg.org/weather/weather_clou ds.asp
It starts when the earth cools off rapidly bye radiationhttp://www.scoutingny.com/?m=201008
When the temperature is 4c snowflakes usually melt and continuo as rain drops When the temperature is -5c ice crystals join into larger clumps and form a snow flake. http://www.shutterstock.com/pic- 47930068/stock-vector--glossy-icons- representing-different-weather-symbol-sun- clouds-rain-storm-snow-night.html
Sleet is the fall of small particles of clear transparent ice. Glaze also known as freezing rain it happens when rain becomes 0c and when it hits a surface I turns into ice. Hail is produced in a cumulonimbus cloud it starts as a small ice pellets that grow by collecting super cooling water as they fall.
