Without clouds, it would not rain. Clouds are made up of water droplets

Science in the Bible.

 By B. Walker

(Job 26:8-10 KJV).
"He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them. He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it. He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end."

Without clouds, it would not rain. Clouds are made up of water droplets formed when warm, moist air rises high into the sky and cools. That water vapour in it condenses and forms what will become raindrops. These droplets move around in the cloud and bang into each other. As they do this, they increase in size until they are heavy enough to fall from the cloud.

Rain clouds usually have particular characteristics. They are often large, grey clouds and appear dark because they are so large and full of water that sunlight cannot get through them. The heaviest rain falls from the deepest, darkest clouds which are high enough for the raindrops to develop properly.
