How do the clouds move?
Question Date: 2013-03-11
Answer 1:

This is an interesting question. The wind moves the clouds. When the winds are strong, the clouds move fast. For instance, some type of clouds can travel at more than 100 miles per hour! The clouds will move with the jet stream and they can sometimes be part of thunderstorms, moving at speeds between 30 and 40 miles per hour.
