Precipitation & Clouds

  1. 1. Do certain kinds of clouds give certain kinds of precipitation? YES! · Tall clouds- more chance for droplets to run into one another and combine, making larger raindrops. · Precipitation from large cumulus clouds is often heavy rain or snow showers that don't last very long. · Precipitation from stratus clouds is usually long lasting, with smaller drops of rain or snowflakes. · Clouds with vertical development hold a lot of water. These clouds are violent The tops often reach heights where it is below freezing, producing hail.
