In meteorology, precipitation is any form of water that falls from the sky as part of the weather to the ground.
This includes snow, rain, sleet, freezing rain, hail, and virga.
Precipitation is a major part of the hydrologic cycle, and is responsible for depositing most of the fresh water on the planet.
