Florida Condo Clouds Are Really Cool

An outfit called Panhandle Helicopter took this great photo of the highrises along Panama City Beach, Florida.

If winds, humidity and other weather  conditions are just right, you get these waves of fog that wash over the buildings, according to a blog by Jim Loznicka, a WJHG-TV meteorologist in Panama City.

Looks to me like the air coming off the water is almost moist enough to produce fog. When the air lifts over the buildings, it cools maybe a fraction of a degree. But the cooling is probably enough to condense the moisture in the atmosphere into fog.

Pretty cool, as you usually don't see buildings affecting the weather that directly.
