Asperitas clouds were spotted over the area Friday ahead of the approaching storm
ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Did you spot the wave-like clouds over the area Friday?
Asperitas, also known as Undulatus Asperitas, are a fairly rare cloud formation that take on the appearance of rippling waves. The waves form on the underside of the clouds which, in motion time-lapse, make clouds appear to be moving like a rough sea surface.
