dc.description.abstract In this project we present a review of the physics of clouds and precipitation in the atmosphere. Thunderstorms are a global phenomenon in the mid-latitudes and tropics. They form where and whenever the ingredients for their formation come together: instability, moisture and lift. Especially upon interaction with vertical wind shear, they may develop in to wellorganized systems that produce hazards such as large hail, severe winds, heavy precipitation, and tornadoes. We must look in to the processes by which the clouds are formed and precipitation is produced in order to the meaning of clouds they related to weather. We will see how clouds are classified and, named and what kinds of precipitation certain types of clouds produce. And also in this project we study how to clouds form and precipitation develop in the atmosphere must be saturated with moisture. As a cold air passes over warm water, rapid evaporation takes places and the saturation is quickly reached. Lifting of air, and the resulting adiabatic expansion, is the most important cooling method. The lifting may be accomplished by thermal orographic or frontal action. It produces most of the clouds and precipitation. en_US
