Cloud formation

Making clouds

What are some other things that help create clouds?

Make a mountain

Mountains can act like ramps, forcing blowing winds to carry warm air up into the colder parts of the atmosphere where water vapor condenses into drops and forms clouds.

This is one of the main reasons why the windward sides of mountain ranges are often cloudy and rainy.

When air sinks on the other side of mountain ranges, it is usually much drier and warmer and descends down the mountains in wave-like patterns. The little water vapor left in the air can condense at the peaks of these waves, forming wavy clouds that are sometimes mistaken for UFOs.
