How many types of clouds are there?

    Clouds are broken into three altitudes, low (below 6,500 ft.), middle (about 6,500 ft – 20,000 ft.), and high (20,000 – 40,000+ ft.).  Within those altitudes are different clouds, but they are all a form of either cumulus, stratus, or cirrus clouds.  Low altitudes produce cumulus, stratus, and stratocumulus clouds.  Middle altitudes produce altocumulus and altostratus.  High altitudes produce cirrus, cirrocumulus, and cirrostratus.  Rain is produced from the low altitude nimbostratus, while thunderstorms are produced from cumulonimbus.
