Rare "Hole Punch" Clouds Make an Appearance in Our Area

By  | 

Many north Florida and south Georgia residents saw strange "holes" in the clouds Thursday morning. What caused them?

The short explanation is that a plane's exhaust causes supercooled droplets in a cloud layer to freeze, which then expand and sink into a drier air mass, evaporate and then leave a hole.

Of course, there is more to it. For more info, check the link below, and see the pictures on my Facebook and Twitter feeds (links to Like/Follow those are also below).
