Middle clouds: Nimbostratus 1 Illustration of a nimbostratus cloud, a rain cloud characterized by a formless layer that is almost uniformly dark gray, of medium altitude, usually developing above 6500 ft (2000 m). Nimbo is from the Latin word "nimbus" meaning rain. They may block a great amount of sunlight as a result of their characteristic dense structure. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,cloudy,raincloud,nimbo

Low clouds: Stratocumulus 1 Illustration of stratocumulus clouds, belonging to a class characterized by large dark, rounded masses, usually in groups, lines, or waves. Weak convective currents create shallow cloud layers because of drier, stable air above preventing continued vertical development. Vast areas of subtropical and polar oceans are covered with massive sheets of stratocumuli. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,

Low clouds: Cumulus 1 Illustration of a cumulus cloud, a cloud with noticeable vertical development and clearly defined edges. Cumulus means "heap" or "pile" in Latin. They are often described as "puffy" or "cotton-like" in appearance. Cumulus clouds typically form when warm air rises and reaches a level of comparatively cool air, where the moisture in the air condenses. This usually happens through convection, where a parcel of air is warmer than the surrounding air. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky

Low clouds: Stratus 1 Illustration of stratus clouds, meaning layer or blanket in Latin. Characterized by horizontal layering with a uniform base. Flat, featureless clouds of low altitude varying in color from dark gray to nearly white obscuring the disk of the sun. Essentially above-ground fog formed either through the lifting of morning fog or when cold air moves at low altitudes over a region. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,fog

Low clouds: Cumulonimbus 1 Illustration of cumulonimbus clouds, tall, dense, and involved in thunderstorms and other intense weather. Cumulonimbus means "column rain" in Latin. It is a result of atmospheric instability. These clouds can form alone, in clusters, or along a cold front in a squall line. They create lightning through the heart of the cloud. Cumulonimbus storm cells can produce heavy rain (particularly of a convective nature) and flash flooding, as well as straight-line winds. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,storm,rain,squall,flood,wind

Weather; hurricane (N Hemisphere) Illustration of a hurricane, or tropical cyclone: a storm system characterized by a low pressure center and numerous thunderstorms that produce strong winds and flooding rain. Depending on its location and strength, a tropical cyclone is referred to by names such as hurricane, typhoon, tropical storm, cyclonic storm, tropical depression, and simply cyclone. Has counterclockwise rotation in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise rotation in the Southern Hemisphere due to the Coriolis Effect. symbol,vector,illustration,meteorology,climate,weather,atmosphere,sky,hurricane,typhoon,tropical,storm,cyclonic,storm,tropical,depression,cyclone
