Sign of early summer?

Wet season clouds already?

If so that would give summer an early start.

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.

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

And full of water.
