Convectional rainfall occurs when the sun's heat causes water vapor at the Earth's surface to rise up into clouds. When the cloud is heavy enough, rain falls. More »

Convectional rainfall occurs when the warm air deflected from a landform rises and forms rain clouds. Convectional rainfall is very common in tropical areas as well as areas in southeastern England. More »

A convectional rainfall diagram gives a visual representation of the process through which atmosphere produces convectional rain. The diagram starts with warming land, which heats the air above it and causes the air to e... More »

Convection rainfall is what happens when the sun heats a water source to the point that water turns into vapor and rises. By the time it reaches the condensation level, the vapor is usually cool enough to turn back into ... More »

Rainfall is the result of water vapor condensing and precipitating, forming droplets that fall from clouds due to gravity. It is an important part of the water cycle. More »

Precipitation forms when condensation inside clouds occurs at the level that the droplets become heavy enough to fall down to the Earth's surface. Rain, hail, freezing rain, snow and sleet are all types of precipitation ... More »
