Rope Cloud

Florida satellite shows an east-west oriented long thin cloud feature stretching over both the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico.  While this feature crosses Florida the clouds dissipate over land.  This feature is know as a ‘rope’ cloud and identifies a cold front that is current moving through the state.  No precipitation is expected with this front.  Rope clouds usually only show up over water areas.
