Can you name clouds?

Yes. The highest clouds are the cirrus clouds, which are thin, wispy, and white, and there are cirro-cumulus clouds, which are puffy clouds. The middle clouds are the altostratus clouds which blanket the sky. There is also the altocumulus clouds which is also a puffy cloud. Lastly, there is the cumulus cloud which is as well puffy. Finally, we have the lowest clouds. the first one is the stratocumulus cloud which is ALSO puffy. there is the nimbostratus cloud which produces rain. then there is the stratus cloud, also know as fog. Finally there is the cumulonibus cloud, also known as a thunderhead. it has not either a high, middle, or low cloud. it stretches from the high clouds to the low clouds. as you can guess by its name, it produces heavy rain and thunderstorms. There are many clouds with the same features but an easy way to remember them is by the parts of its name: cirro/cirrus- high alto- middle cumulus/cumulo- puffy nimbo/nimbus- produces rain stratus/strato- low
