CINDY'S SNAPSHOT: Ominous signs ahead of Dorian

On Saturday, you could feel the storm approaching and if you looked up, you could see signs of it too. Fonda Wyre noticed this ominous looking sky over the Canso Causeway in Nova Scotia on Saturday. The clouds are called Asperitas cloud; they often look like the surface of the sea on a choppy day. In fact, the name comes from the Latin verb ‘aspero’, meaning to make rough. There has to be a lot of heat and energy to produce this spectacular formation of clouds.
