Environment Canada says that conditions will be favourable for the development of funnel clouds today.

They say that a few reports of funnel clouds in Essex County have been received, and a few more brief funnel clouds are possible 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.

If conditions become more favourable for the development of landspout tornadoes, watches and warnings will be issued by Environment Canada.
