How is Rain Formed?

 

Rain is a very curious topic. It gives us fresh water to drink, helps farmers to grow crops, and it is fun to play in. People say that it is raining cats and dogs, but what does it mean? How is rain formed?  This explanation will explain everything below.

Rain is a natural resource. It is water droplets falling from the sky. Rain is actually a part of the weather called precipitation, which means any form of water that fall to the earth, like rain, snow, drizzle, hail and sleet. Water can be in the atmosphere, on land, in the ocean and even underground. It gets used over and over and over  again through which is called the water cycle. This brings us to the next part.

 

Now for the most important part... How is rain formed? The water cycle is where water falls down from the sky, and then goes back up again. In this cycle, water changes from and into solid, liquid and gas. The gas is also called water vapour.

Water from the earth turn into water vapor then gets into the atmosphere through a process called evaporation. This then turns the water that is at the top of oceans, rivers and lakes into water vapor in the atmosphere using energy from the sun. This vapor can also from snow and ice too. The water vapor rises in the atmosphere and there it cools down and forms tiny water droplets through something called condensation. These then turn into clouds.oqkLekCqelPwYPI6CoEGwjJO5UtaKmQtMkd5bpSN

When they all combine together, they grow bigger and are too heavy to stay up there in the air.

This is when they will fall to the ground as rain, or maybe snow or hail by gravity.

 

Now that I have explained all I can explain about rain to you, here are some stunning and interesting facts about rain that I am sure you wouldn’t know.

 

Firstly, The least rainy place on earth isn’t in the desert. It may be covered with ice, but Antarctica gets only 6.5 inches of rain or snow per year, making it the continent with the lowest annual rainfall by far, whereas a desert normally get approximately 7 inches of rainfall per year.

 

Secondly, did you know that not only rain, snow, drizzle, hail and sleet fall from the sky?  In some parts of the earth, unusual things have been known to fall from the sky. It rains tadpoles and small fish in addition to other things. The Rain of Fish is normal in Honduran Folklore. A celebration known as Rain of Fish Festival is feted consistently in the city of Yoro, as hundreds of living fish are found on the ground after it rains there in between the months of May & July.

 

Thirdly and lastly, There is no end to rain in Mt. Waialeale in Kauai, Hawaii, as it has up to 350 rainy days every year.

 

Rain is a very important element in our lives. Without rain, all human beings will die. If rain gets too polluted one day, there will also means the number of people getting sick or even die will increase. Surely you wouldn’t want that. However due to the cruelty of humans, most rain nowadays are “acid rain” it means polluted rain. If we let this to continue, Acid rain will makes more waters acidic, and causes them to absorb the aluminum that makes its way from soil into lakes. So let us stop rain pollution!
