Clouds have both cooling and warming effects on Earth's surface. Figuring how they balance is tricky. Determining global cloud cover over time is a major aspect of understanding climate change.

At night cloud cover has the opposite effect. If skies are clear, heat emitted from the earth's surface freely escapes into space, resulting in colder temperatures. However, if clouds are present, some of the heat emitted from the earth's surface is trapped by the clouds and reemitted back towards the earth.

How clouds affect the weather is likely to change because of global warming. Clouds are able to mediate temperature in several ways: Clouds that are high up absorb heat from the sun's rays and radiate it towards the Earth. Clouds that are low down cool the Earth by blocking the sun's rays.

The effects of cloud cover on temperature is a familiar experience. Without a cloud cover in an area the temperature drops sharply at night whereas with clouds the temperature drop is noticeably more moderate. On the other hand in the daytime in the summer with no clouds the temperature goes much higher than it does when there is a cloud cover.
