Activity

Where does rain come from?

When water becomes warm from the sun, it evaporates and turns into vapor. Vapor rises into the air and cools, forming frozen water crystals and itty bitty water droplets. When these water droplets and crystals come together they become clouds. Over time, the water droplets attract even more water and once the cloud gets nice and heavy, full of lots of water crystals and droplets, gravity pulls them down out of the cloud in the form of RAIN!

 

If it’s cold enough outside, the water crystals stay frozen and grow nice and big, making them fall from the sky as snow.

Snow and Rain are forms of Precipitation.
