Today 31/10/2019, 8:00 AM, high altitude plane/s at 40 thousand feet, travelling east to west over the Gold Coast (planes at that height have come from where and are going where?) released white trails which spread out to form grey misty clouds. As the day progressed these clouds coalesced and sank down to form radared ribbons of strato-cumulous clouds in the “pushed” jet stream flow. This appeared to ripple like water over sand and dissipate the denser cloud cover below so as to reduce the possibility of rain. Doppler radar are capable of heating cloud fronts to make them rise. Why are they doing this? That’s a bloody good question! Let me answer that…well no you have to buy my book…poor farmers!
