Description:

Mr. Squirrel listened to the pitter -patter of rain tapping on his tree for proof that he was awake. He had checked the clouds last night and they forecast that it would probably be raining again. 


A sketchbook made into a story featuring some nice items for geography and science lessons while reading. 
Rain is also known or suspected on other planets, where it may be composed of methane, neon, sulfuric acid or even iron rather than water.  Rain is liquid water in the form of droplets that have condensed from atmospheric water vapor and then precipitated—that is, become heavy enough to fall under gravity. Rain is a major component of the water cycle and is responsible for depositing most of the fresh water on the Earth. It provides suitable conditions for many types of ecosystem, as well as water for hydroelectric power plants and crop irrigation.

The major cause of rain production is moisture moving along three-dimensional zones of temperature and moisture contrasts known as weather fronts. If enough moisture and upward motion is present, precipitation falls from convective clouds (those with strong upward vertical motion) such as cumulonimbus (thunder clouds) which can organize into narrow rain bands. In mountainous areas, heavy precipitation is possible where up slope flow is maximized within windward sides of the terrain at elevation which forces moi stair to condense and fall out as rainfall along the sides of mountains. On the leeward side of mountains, desert climates can exist due to the dry air caused by down slope flow which causes heating and drying of the air mass. The movement of the monsoon trough or inter tropical convergence zone, brings rainy seasons to savannah climes.
