Water-saturated air Empty

The main ways water vapor is added to the air are: wind convergence into areas of upward motion,[10] precipitation or virga falling from above,[11] daytime heating evaporating water from the surface of oceans, water bodies or wet land,[12] transpiration from plants,[13] cool or dry air moving over warmer water,[14] and lifting air over mountains.[15] Water vapor normally begins to condense on condensation nuclei such as dust, ice, and salt in order to form clouds. Elevated portions of weather fronts (which are three-dimensional in nature)[16] force broad areas of upward motion within the Earth's atmosphere which form clouds decks such as altostratus or cirrostratus.[17] Stratus is a stable cloud deck which tends to form when a cool, stable air mass is trapped underneath a warm air mass. It can also form due to the lifting of advection fog during breezy conditions.[18]
