What are the scientific names for the types of clouds?
There are two main types: stratus (flat layer) clouds and cumulus (tall bubbly) clouds. As well as the two main types, high clouds are called Cirrus. Middle-level clouds are Alto. Rain clouds have Nimbus attached to them. So: Low-level clouds are Stratus, Cumulus, Cumulonimbus and Stratocumulus. Middle-level clouds are Altostratus and Altocumulus High-level clouds are: Cirrus, Cirrostratus and Cirrocumulus. A cloud that grows from low-level, through middle-level up to high-level, is called Nimbostratus and this deep cloud can bring heavy rain or snow that can last for several hours.
