Join Meteorologist Rick Katzfey as he discusses the different types of cumulus clouds on this segment of Weather 101.
Many of our cloud types have a Latin origin. Cumulus means "heap or pile" in Latin and indeed these clouds do look like piles of cauliflower. They are harmless and many people see different shapes in these clouds. For a fun activity go outside and see what shapes you can see in the clouds.
With the proper ingredients these puffy looking clouds can become the mean towering thunderstorm clouds we call Cumulonimbus. Cumulus of course means "pile or heap" and nimbus means "rain". So literally translated Cumulonimbus means pile of rain.
I hope you learned a little about Cumulus cloud types in this episode of Weather 101. As always you can send us your questions and any topics you want us to cover to our email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay safe and healthy everyone!
