Sign of early summer?

Wet season clouds already?

If so that would give summer an early start.


A
prescribed burn south of Tamiami Trail
in Big Cypress Nat'l Preserve as seen about one
 mile west of Oasis Visitor Center looking east
on February 3rd, 2015

This is actually a prescribed-burn formed cloud.

Instead of sunlight heating the peninsula causing a cumulonimbus cloud to form, rising heat from a prescribed fire caused a cloud to form in the cooler upper atmosphere air.


H
ere's a closer look
If it were summer the cypress dome above would be green,

And full of water.
