A stratus cloud is a cloud belonging to a class characterized by horizontal layering with a uniform base.

A cloudy day usually features a sky filled with stratus clouds.

Cumulus clouds look like white puffy cotton balls. Cumulus means ''Heap'' or ''Pile'' in Latin. Cumulus clouds may appear alone, in lines, or in clusters. Cumulus clouds typically form when warm air rises and reaches a level of cool air, where the moisture in the air condenses. A Culmulonimbus cloud looks like clumulus clouds but stacked up.
