RED LAKE – WEATHER – Possible funnel clouds beginning this afternoon.
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.
Treat any funnel cloud sighting seriously. Should a funnel cloud develop nearby, prepare to take shelter. These funnel clouds usually appear with little or no warning.
Weather advisory in effect for:
- Ear Falls – Perrault Falls – Western Lac Seul
