April Rain

April showers Bring May flowers :

Where does Rain come from :

Evaporation is the process by which water changes from a liquid to a vapor. The Sun’s energy warms water droplets until the water becomes a vapor and rises into the air. When water vapor (or droplets) come together in the sky, they form clouds.

Condensation is the process by which water vapor cools and becomes a liquid again.

Precipation is the process by which condensed water builds up in clouds and falls to the ground as rain, sleet, snow, or hail.

Water cycle

  • The cycle starts when water on the surface of the Earth evaporates. …
  • Then, water collects as water vapor in the sky. …
  • Next, the water in the clouds gets cold. …
  • Then, the water falls from the sky as rain, snow, sleet or hail. …
  • The water sinks into the surface and also collects into lakes, oceans, or aquifers.

Plants use the moisture in the soil to replenish the water lost through transpiration. If there is no water in the soil, the leaves will wilt. As more water is lost, the plant will fail and eventually die. Rainwater builds up the moisture levels in the soil and assures a healthy plant.

What does the weather look like in your part of the world ?
