A Few Facts About Clouds:
- Clouds are made up of water or ice crystals.
- Clouds look white because they reflect the sun.
- The wind moves the clouds.
- Cirrus clouds are clouds high in the air. They are thin and wispy.
- Cumulus clouds look like cotton. They are fluffy and white.
- Stratus clouds are thick and flat. They often appear before a storm.
- Cumulonimbus clouds indicate thunderstorms. The tops are flat and have an anvil shape. Sometimes, you can tell which way the storm is going by looking at where the anvil points.
