Conditions Favourable For Development Of Funnel Clouds Today-Environment Canada

KAWARTHA LAKES-Environment Canada has issued a Weather Alert for our area.

Officials say conditions will be favourable for the development of funnel clouds. These types of funnel clouds are generated by weak rotation under rapidly growing clouds or weak thunderstorms. This weak rotation is normally not a danger near the ground. However, there is a chance that this rotation could intensify and become a weak landspout tornado. Landspout tornadoes do not usually cause significant damage but can still be dangerous. They can be strong enough to topple trees, damage roofs or toss debris short distances.

To report severe weather, send an email to [email protected] or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
