SkyWatch17 Explains: Hole spotted in cloud
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) —
A midstate woman shared photos with FOX 17 News that showed a hole in the clouds.
As it turns out, SkyWatch17 Meteorologist Justin Chambers said what Lorena DLalvay actually captured on camera was a hole punch cloud.
The "UFO-like" hole usually occurs in winter or colder temperatures.
A lot of time it's caused by jets flying through layers of cold air which cool and condense, making ice or snow.
That precipitation then falls and creates the “hole punch.”
