Wednesday morning waterspouts formed over Lake Ontario

Lake Ontario had waterspouts above it due to the weather conditions on Wednesday morning.

While watersports look like little tornados, they are formed very differently.

When cold air crosses over warm water is causes the air to rise, forming moisture in the air. This causes the water to rise and connect to clouds up above.

They last around 2-20 minutes.

Lake Ontario usually experiences waterspouts between late summer through fall and can be seen more often on the eastern end of the lake.
