Is This Fog Rolling in or a Science Fiction Waterfall?

This epic fog rolling in off the Canadian coast will leave you smiling and a little scared.

Blue skies and calm winds mean nothing to the fog rolling in off the ocean near Newfoundland, Canada.

Take a closer look at what people from North America’s west coast to its east coast get to see sometimes when the conditions are right.

The video was taken in the town of Larks Harbour, Newfoundland.

Bob Robichaud, Preparedness Meteorologist with Environment Canada in Halifax, Nova Scotia was quoted as saying, “If you have a moist air mass coming over, the cold water will cool the moist air mass from below, bringing the temperature right down to the dew point, so then you‘ll have fog forming over that area.”

Robichaud added, “Fog formed on one side of the Long Range Mountains, then built up before cascading down the other side. As it’s coming down, it’s drying out because it’s moving into drier air, so that’s why the fog never really makes it beyond the bottom of that mountain.”

Now you know!
