Conditions will be favourable for the development of funnel clouds today.

Hazard: Funnel clouds. In rare cases, these may develop into a landspout tornado.

Source: A possible landspout tornado was reported near Almonte at 3:00 PM local time.

Timing: More funnel clouds and possible landspouts are possible through early this evening.

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.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
