"Hey Kevin! Do the jet contrails we see in the sky have anything to do with forecasting the weather?"
The answer is yes.
A jet contrail is actually the trail of a jet as it flies through the sky, one of the by products of burning jet fuel is water vapor.
And so high in the sky, if there's already a lot of water of vapor in the sky, or if it's quite cold in the sky, it leaves a trail.
The more moisture there is in the sky, the longer the trail will be.
If there's more moisture in the atmosphere, that's often a very good indication that there's rain on the way.
So, a jet trail that's very long in the sky is often a good indicator of rain because there is more moisture in the sky.
More moisture in the sky means there's a better chance for rain on the way.
