  2. 2. High Clouds<br />Cirrus<br />Cirrostratus<br />Cirrocumulus<br />
  3. 3. Cirrus Clouds<br />The most common of the high clouds. They are thin and composed of ice. Cirrus clouds let us know that the weather is likely to change within 24 hours. <br />
  4. 4. Cirrostratus<br />Thin sheet like clouds that often cover the entire sky. They usually appear 12-24 hours before a rain or snow storm. <br />
  5. 5. Cirrocumulus<br />Appear as small white puffs that are collected in long rows. Usually seen in the winter and indicate fair but cold weather. <br />
  6. 6. Middle Clouds<br />Altostratus<br />Altocumulus<br />
  7. 7. Altostratus<br />Gray or blue-gray mid level clouds made up of ice crystals and water droplets that usually cover the entire sky. Are often seen ahead of storms with continuous rain or snow. <br />
  8. 8. Altocumulus <br />Mid level clouds made of tiny water droplets and appear as gray puffy masses. They usually appear in groups. They are indications of afternoon thunderstorms. <br />
  9. 9. Low clouds <br />Stratus<br />Stratocumulus<br />Nimbostratus<br />
  10. 10. Stratus <br />Uniform grayish clouds that cover the entire sky. They are low clouds that do not touch the ground. They mean rain if its warm and snow if its cold. <br />
  11. 11. Stratocumulus <br />Low puffy gray clouds. Most form in row where blue skies can be seen in between them. Rain rarely comes from them. <br />
  12. 12. Nimbostratus<br />Dark gray wet looking cloudy layer associated with continuous rain or snow fall. Precipitation is usually light to moderate. <br />
  13. 13. Vertical Growing clouds<br />Cumulus<br />Cumulonimbus<br />
  14. 14. Cumulus <br />White puffy clouds that look like pieces of floating cotton. These clouds are often called “fair weather” clouds. <br />
  15. 15. Cumulonimbus<br />These are thunderstorm clouds. The top of the clouds are flattened by high winds. They are associated with heavy rain, snow, hail and even tornados. <br />
