The diagram explains the water cycles.
Overall, there are several stages in the water cycle which begins from evaporation water to be condensation into cloud then are transpired the rain or snow.
Heating water by sun is cause water which is undergoing evaporation, and water vapor condenses to form clouds. Evaporation of water to emanate from ocean contributes about 80% of total water vapor in air. Then water to undergo condensing water vapor. When water is forming cloud formation so can undergo precipitation and undergo rain or snow. Rainwater may take various paths. Some of it may fall into lakes or return to the oceans via 'surface runoff'. Otherwise, rainwater may filter through the ground, reaching the impervious layer of the earth. Salt water intrusion is shown to take place just before groundwater passes into the oceans to complete the cycle.
To summary, the water cycle is process of water which is always happened and never to stop.
