Caption: Cumulus cloud low to the ground. These clouds form at low altitudes (under 2000 metres) from water droplets that condense out of rising columns of moist air (thermals). Cumulus clouds often form at cold fronts, where advancing cold air pushes warmer air upwards, causing moisture to condense very quickly. These clouds sometimes grow into dark, towering storm clouds (called cumulonimbus), which can grow up to 15 kilometres tall.
