10 Different Weather Types

Fog is formed when water vapor condenses and creates tiny water droplets. So basically think of fog being a low to ground cloud.

When tornadoes form a few thing need to happen, First you need rotating winds which is because of wind shear. Second you need high speeds which then creates a funnel-like shape. Third, you just need enough of those two and time to allow the tornado to touch ground and destroy everything.

Snowfall forms when the water in the clouds freeze and then turn into tiny ice crystals. They are then released because they become too heavy for the cloud to hold.

Rain is created when the water in the clouds condenses and becomes too heavy for the cloud to hold.

The process in the water cycle in in which water is changes in state from liquid to gas is called evaporation. Once the water is evaporated it condenses into clouds. This is how a cloudy day can be created, with mnay different types of clouds.

The unequal heating from the sun affects the Earth, this can lead to the warm air expanding and rising and the cold air condensing and sinking. In result leaving a steady flow of air which can be called wind.

Ice in the clouds create electric charges from bumping into one another in the sky. This then creates the lightning in a thunderstorm.

Conditions need to be nearly perfect for the formation of a hurricane. 1) You need the ocean temperatures to be warm enough to provide movement to the hurricane. 2) The atmospheric moisture has to combine with the heat and energy. 3) A wind pattern is required to be near to the ocean's surface in order for it to spiral inward.

A sunny day is simply created with a clear sky and no weather interuptions.

Sometimes strong currents of rising air, known as updrafts, are able to carry water droplets high enough in the thunderstorm that they freeze. Once frozen, the droplets then are released and fall to the ground, resulting in hail.
