Particle distribution inside clouds (1 Viewer)

I need to learn about the distribution of particles within clouds.

I'm looking to create some CGed clouds, and I found a very cool program to simulate them, but it requires I give it a "map" of all particles within each cloud (by location). I'm going to write a program to create random clouds, but I want it to be at least somewhat physically accurate.

So how would you best describe the way the particles that make up clouds are located inside them? I'm well aware that there are many types of clouds, so let's work from the ground up and start with the lowest kind of clouds.
