The sun heats the water, which rises as invisible water vapour. The warm air cools in upper layers of the air and the vapour condenses.
This uses up energy (evaporation), which is then released again during condensation.

Information and ideas:
The principle of evaporation is one element of the water cycle.
Question: Why is the climate mostly milder in high-precipitation areas than in comparable dry areas?
