Expanding Contrails - Feb 27, 2005

As the planes traversed a specific area of the sky early on February 27th, the contrails sheared and expanded into a visible swath of cloud cover. I guess the temperature and humidity were "just right" in this area for explosive growth of clouds. Does this indicate significant condensation nuclei is dumped in jet exhaust? What is the impact of this unintentional man made weather modification?
