Still would not explain what I'm seeing in CA, with warm weather and generally low humidaty here.
That's just it though. Ground level conditions don't mean anything when you're talking about 30,000+ feet. I came through Arizona yesterday
afternoon, where the humidity was low, and the temp was in the 90s (according to my truck sensor), and watched a couple of dozen persistent contrails
being left behind. Including one that started from "nowhere" made a dogleg, and persisted for a way before stopping. Just normal contrails.
Really pretty at sunset.
I agree. When I flew the Cessna in my pic we flew at 1800 feet and it was just barely light jacket weather on the ground. we were blasting the heat at
1800 feet. Didn't really notice how high the heat was until we landed and I started scorching..
