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

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).
