Cumulus Clouds

First of all, I’m sorry that we have not done a post in so long. I’ve been very busy and have also been sick for the past several days. Today we will be looking at Cumulous clouds which are one of the types of clouds you see below. ┬áCumulus clouds may seem boring but once you know about them they are not so boring.

There are 10 different types of clouds:

  1. Cirrus
  2. Cirrostatus
  3. Cirrocumulus
  4. Altocumulus
  5. Altostratus
  6. Nimbostratus
  7. Cumulus
  8. Stratus
  9. Stratocumulus
  10. Cumulonimbus

Cumulous are the regular fluffy clouds, sometimes big and sometime small. Actually there are 4 types of Cumulous clouds. They are:

  1. Cumulous Fractus: They are very small clouds that don’t have much structure.
  2. Cumulous Humilis: They are smaller than the usual Cumulus clouds that are commonly seen.
  3. Cumulous Mediocris: They are about as tall as they are wide.
  4. Cumulous Congestus: They are very big and almost look like mesocyclones with no wall cloud.
