Fantastic Condo Wave Clouds [from the web]

We want to thank Gary Childers for the post.  Quite interesting photo and even more interesting since Dan Satterfield is the meteorologist here in Huntsville where the Soaring Cafe editors live! — the Editors

Image taken by J.R. Hott of Panhandle Helicopters of Panama City, Fl. on Sunday 5 Feb.

Panhandle Helicopter tours posted this pic on their Facebook page Sunday, and I sure wish I’d been on the ride! What is happening here is fairly easy to explain and it has to do with the wind, the condos, and the moisture in the air.  Read the rest of Dan Satterfield’s blog post here.
