Mysterious Cloud Cover in Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia [AP]  Meteorologists and scientists are baffled by a cloud cover over Nova Scotia, which resists high winds, and persists through storms and seeming clear weather in the bordering provinces, and even over the neighboring section of the Atlantic.
Most baffling of all is the increase in temperature in this normally cold province.
Samples of the cloud cover have also returned interesting results, with water particles interspersed with sulfur, and high amounts of carbon. The baffling scientists is the fact that there is no apparent reason for the makeup of the cloud, which closer resembles smoke than a normal cloud.
