rain, sleet, snow, drizzle or hail, the falling to earth of any form of water (rain or snow or hail or sleet or mist)
drops of fresh water that fall as precipitation from clouds
a process that produces percipitation. the process involves tiny ice crystals in a supercooled cloud growing larger at the expense of the surrounding liquid droplets.
Collision - coalescence process
Small cloud droplets become larger& larger till they become raindrops. Updraft of air blow the water back into the cloud.
v. to rain gently and steadily in fine drops; n. a very light rain, liquid precipitation wtih drops smaller than raindrops
when raindrops fall through the freezing air, they turn into pellets of ice that fall to the ground
raindrops that freeze when they touch a cold surface
Ice pellets called ____ add layers of ice as they are carried up and down in a cumulonimbus cloud. The ice crystal grows bigger.
formed when air near the surface of the earth cools condensing the water vapor onto something forming a water droplet.
The temperature at which dew forms, it depends on hte pressure and humidityof the air.
temperature at which water vapor skips the liquid stage and immediatley freezes on any surface
