If the atmospheric conditions are unstable enough, not only do many clouds form, but cumulus clouds might experience substantial vertical growth, leading to precipitation. Cumulus congestus, also known as towering cumulus, are cumulus clouds that have grown heavy with water molecules and often bring rain.
Another common question is “What is the relationship between clouds and rain?”.
One source stated first of all, clouds are colloidal forms of water in air. When the saturation point of cloud is reached, ie by the amount of water vapor it can hold, it condenses to form water droplets which precipitates as rains. Once all the water present in the clouds are precipitated then there will be no clouds!
It should be noted that condensation by itself does not cause precipitation (rain, snow, sleet, hail). The moisture in clouds must become heavy enough to succumb to gravity and return to earth’s surface. This occurs through two processes. In cold clouds ice crystals and water droplets exist side by side.
Do clouds disappear after it rains?
When the cloud loses all its moisture we expect it to disappear. In some cases it does. However, in some cases a thin line of cloud is left behind after the rain.
Do clouds go empty after it rains?
Clouds are not containers of water so that it goes empty after it rains. First of all, clouds are colloidal forms of water in air. When the saturation point of cloud is reached, ie by the amount of water vapor it can hold, it condenses to form water droplets which precipitates as rains .
Why do clouds darken when it rains?
When it’s about to rain, clouds darken because the water vapor is clumping together into raindrops, leaving larger spaces between drops of water. Less light is reflected.
Clouds appears black :. In th atmosphere any object’s colour is dependent on the ability to reflect wavelengths of light. When an object does not reflect any colour, it appears black. Thayswhy tiny droplets of water in rain clouds: Scatter the white light of the sun. Red is scattered first, and violet the last. At high altitude no rays of the sun reach the bottom of the cloud., and more items.
You may be asking “Why are storm clouds darker than regular clouds?”
This is why, storm clouds are dark black or grey. Explanation: Most clouds appear white, because sunlight reflects off the water droplets. If the clouds are thick, the droplets scatter or absorb the light and less solar radiation can travel through them. This is why, storm clouds are dark black or grey .
Why do clouds always cover the Sun?
These clouds are not actually behind the sun, rather this is an optical illusion caused by the way cameras pick up light. This is fully explained on the webpage I linked below, but I will give a summary. Cameras have a limit to how bright of a light they can see. Some clouds let more light through than others.
Also, what happens to clouds in the atmosphere when it gets hot?
Usually clouds, after a period of time, just evaporate. Clouds are just large collections of condensed water droplets (or sometime ice crystals) helps aloft by the wind. When the temperature gets hot enough these water droplets/ ice crystals evaporate back into the air.
Clouds are formed of micro-droplets of water. If the droplets merge together, they become drops and fall as rain, or freeze together and fall as sleet or snow. Sometimes they evaporate and become invisible water vapor. That’s how clouds disappear, the micro-droplets of water become another form or water.

Why do clouds move in a high pressure system?
High pressure systems have colder air sinking downwards towards the centre from above, and due to coriolis effects, this will rotate around the centre as is pushes the lower air outwards. Similarly for lo Clouds move because of wind patterns in the atmosphere.
Why is it said that the cloud is running out of water?
When the condensed water of the sky becomes heavier than air, then it starts to fall i., and e. It starts to rain. As the rain falls enough that the condensed form of water particles become lighter than air, the rain stops. Therefore, in you words, it can be said that “the cloud is running out of water”.
