Greensboro, NC -- WFMY's 2 Wants To Know Newscast is geared toward getting you answers. Recently a viewer submitted a picture of an arcus cloud and commented that they had never seen this type of cloud before.

In the attached video WFMY News 2 Meteorologist Grant Gilmore explains what an arcus cloud is and how they form.

Simply put, an arcus cloud is a horizontal cloud formation associated with the leading edge of a thunderstorm's outflow. See the video for a more in-depth discussion.

If you have a question about the weather you can ask Grant on facebook, twitter or email.
