Yesterday’s word

The word procellous means “stormy, as on the sea”

First usage

Our word came into English in the mid-1600s

Background / Comments

Our word comes to us from Latin; specifically, the word procellōsus (stormy), which came from procella (a storm) with the adjective-making suffix -ōsus (-ous in English). I’m just a little surprised that I haven’t run across this word or any part of it.
