Types of Clouds responsible for precipitation

Do you not see that Allah drives(moves/wafts) clouds? Then He brings them together, then He makes them into a mass, and you see the rain emerge from within it. And He sends down from the sky, mountains [of clouds] within which is hail, and He strikes with it whom He wills and averts it from whom He wills. The flash of its lightening almost takes away the eyesight.(24:43)

And it is He who sends the winds as good tidings before His mercy until, when they have carried heavy rain clouds, We drive them to a dead land and We send down rain therein and bring forth thereby [some] of all the fruits. Thus will We bring forth the dead; perhaps you may be reminded.(7:57)

 

The tropospheric classification of clouds is based upon the physical structure and process of formation.It is as follows:

High cirriform, stratocumuliform, and stratiform

2cirr

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cirrus:No precipitation

Cirrocumulus: No Precipitation

Cirrostatus: No precipitation

Middle stratocumuliform and stratiform

Altocumulus: middle level layered clouds.May produce light showers

Altostratus: middle level grey sheet, thinner layer .May bring rain or snow.

Nimbostratus: thicker, darker and lower based sheet. Often, when an altostratus cloud thickens and descends into lower altitudes, it will become nimbostratus.Cause heavier intensity rain or snow.

Low stratocumuliform,he stratiform, and cumuliform

Stratocumulus: low level layered cloud, series of rounded rolls, generally white.
Precipitation: drizzle.

Stratus: low level layer or mass, grey, uniform base; if ragged, referred to as ‘fractostratus’.
Precipitation: drizzle.

Cumulus: low level, individual cells, vertical rolls or towers, flat base.
Precipitation: showers or snow.

Cumulonimbus: low level, very large cauliflower-shaped towers to 16 km high, often ‘anvil tops’.The towering vertical clouds may develop into cumulonimbus.This type Causes thunderstorms, lightning, squalls.
Precipitation: showers or snow.
