Above is a picture of the strange cloud formation seen.


Below is the video.


Really does look like a tidal wave.

If anyone can break it down, and explain, in easier terms, why or how this happens would be greatly appreciated.



Thanks.

Good find, looks quite freaky yet cool at the same time. I'll be looking forward to see what others say about this.

Hot breeze, mixing with a cold air fog from the sea?

The effect of the buildings on the local atmosphere appears to be forming Kelvin-Helmholtz waves, as the meteorologist said. en.wikipedia.org...

Imagine you run your hand on the surface of a pool, the wake behind it causes an unstable washing effect. It looks like this effect was caused by the buildings and it may have caused a pressure change which allowed the formation of fog. The conditions would have had to been nearly perfect for fog development, and it looks like the turbulence of the buildings may have pushed them into the fog building territory. Whether it was a pressure or temperature difference, I can't say for certain, but this looks similar to the fog formation you might find on the side of a mountain.

Nice find! I wish I could have seen that...

dont know, this is Florida and the water is probably warmer than the land right now.

I'm assuming it can look like waves because water waves are just waves and air and clouds move within the waves of the atmosphere.

Cool pic though.
