Waterspouts put on impressive show off Kenosha

Towering waterspouts were spotted on Lake Michigan near Kenosha, Wis. this afternoon.

The waterspouts – funnel clouds that form over water – formed when thunderstorms combined with strong, cold northeast winds rushing over the warm surface of Lake Michigan, according to WGN-TV meteorologist Tom Skilling.

“This is an explosively unstable atmosphere,” Skilling said. “They would be formidable tornadoes and you wouldn’t want to get too close.”
