Clouds occur

Hi everyone! (waves as Latinately as she knows how)

I have a query about the motto on the coat of arms of the Earls of St Germans (that's in Cornwall). About half the Google entries cite it as 'Occurunt nubes'; the other half say 'Occurrent nubes'.

I can remember just about enough Latin to know that that means "Clouds occur [figuratively, "Shit happens"] but not enough to know whether one of those spellings is just wrong, or if one is the present and one the future tense. Can anyone tell me?
