Abstract : It is pointed out that in the last two decades a substantial step forward has been made in the area of cloud physics. An initial system of equations for describing processes of cloud precipitation formation has been clearly formulated. In particular cases solutions of this equation have been obtained, a number of equations used earlier have been refined, and new working hypotheses have been put forward concerning the mechanism of formation of the spectrum of drops within clouds.
