DRYDEN – WEATHER – Environment Canada has issued a weather advisory for Dryden and Vermilion Bay as well as Sioux Lookout and Eastern Lac Seul.

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.

Weather advisory in effect for:

  • Dryden – Vermilion Bay
  • Sioux Lookout – Eastern Lac Seul

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.
