Precipitation can be in the form of rain, snow, sleet or hail, depending on the air temperature between the clouds and the ground. Humidity Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air.

A hygrometer is used to measure the amount of water vapor in the air. rain sleet snow hail A rain gauge is used to measure how much water has fallen. © Copyright NewPath Learning.
