Mist takes the form of very small particles of water. You'll see mist in forests in the morning, around mountains, above a lake, and when there are foggy conditions. The word "mist" is sometimes used when it seems like it's raining, but you can't see any rain drops.

  • This morning there's a light mist coming down.
  • When we woke up this morning, we noticed everything had been dampened by mist.
