Strange contrail below low cloud cover

One other witness and I noticed large contrail below low cloud cover. We had never seen this before. Contrail extended across the sky and was blowing away rapidly due to high winds as a trail of smoke from a bottle rocket would dissipate. Weather was rainy. Event described as "odd". I have only seen these on clear days until this event.
