Types of Clouds

The ability of the water to divide into invisible molecules and be carried by the air in the atmosphere is magical, more so once these molecules come together and condense into pure white clouds in the atmosphere. The movement of clouds in the air, like bright and soft pillows innocently lingering on top of the world, is such a relaxing spectacle. Aside from this, their sizes, shapes, and forms are also rooms in which the mind can explore creativity and think of clouds’ different resemblances to common objects.

Clouds are categorized on their ability to reach certain heights in the atmosphere. Arranged from bottom to top, these types of clouds are stratus, stratus cumulus, cumulonimbus, and cirrus. Appearance wise, stratus clouds are like sheets of long, shredded papers in the blue skies.

Stratus cumulus clouds also look like shredded papers but in combination with clouds that look like cotton balls, and the ability to extend to higher altitudes. Stratus cumulus clouds also move fast with the wind.types-of-clouds Cumulonimbus, sensing if from the trend, are clouds that look like cotton balls, but with dark areas that can participate in giving heavy rains and thunder storms.
