Popcorn Clouds Over Florida, USA

27.9N 82.4W

April 7th, 2013 Category: Clouds

USA – April 6th, 2013

Popcorn clouds speckle the skies over much of the state of Florida, USA. Visible through the clouds are bodies of water, such as Lake Okeechobee (below) and cities such as Tampa and St Petersburg (west coast) and Miami (southeast coast). This is due to the fact that popcorn clouds tend to appear only above vegetated areas, since they are formed by water vapor released by plants that rises and eventually condenses into clouds.
