Abstract: The water vapor content and clouds play a verysignificant role in atmospheric conditions. This paper is derived from the newcloud detection index (CDI) which is useful to forecast extreme weather eventslike heavy or extreme rain. The CDI is retrieved using two crucial elements ofcloud formation, the critical humidity and critical water vapor. The cloudthickness is determined by using CDI for a radiosonde site (VABB) located inMumbai, the western part of India. The obtained results are compared with thecloud thickness required for extreme rain. The outcome of the comparison isdiscussed in this paper. The cloud detection index is also useful inestablishing the atmospheric stability along with another four atmosphericstability indices.
