The numerical modeling of clouds has a history almost as long as the modern-day concepts of the seeding of clouds. The various models and theoretical developments emerging from the model results are reviewed in this paper. Significant advances have been made in understanding cloud-seeding effects, which bodes well for the continued application of this form of weather modification in the future.
