Cloud Altitude And Temperature Calculator

This calculator requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. This calculator is designed to approximate the altitude of a cloud mass and the temperature within that cloud. Select the temperature designation and the distance (altitude) designation for calculation. Enter the ambient air temperature and the dewpoint. If you are unsure of the dewpoint, you can determine it with our Dew Point And Relative Humidity Calculator. Click on Calculate.

The calculated data is based on the assumption from standard conditions that the air temperature drops 9.84 degrees C per 1000 meters of altitude and the dewpoint drops 1.82 degrees C per 1000 meters altitude. Here is more information of Celsius, Fahrenheit, Kelvin, Réaumur, and Rankine Temperature Conversion. The following formulas are used to estimate cloud height and cloud temperature.

cloudTemp = - 0.00984*cloudHeight + airTemp
cloudTemp = - 0.00182*cloudHeight + dewPoint
