Eye to the sky for possible funnel clouds in Central Alberta

Environment Canada has issued an advisory that conditions for funnel clouds are favourable in Central Alberta, including Red Deer, early Friday afternoon until evening.

Environment Canada has issued an advisory that conditions for funnel clouds are favourable in Central Alberta, including Red Deer, early Friday afternoon until evening.

Funnel clouds are expected early this afternoon until 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, the weather advisory sates.

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

“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.”

To report severe weather, send an email to storm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #ABStorm.

The weather advisory is in effect for the Red Deer, Ponoka, Innisfail and Stettler areas.
