Giant waterspout seen over Lake Michigan

September 26, 2011CHICAGOThe Westside of Lake Michigan put on an impressive waterspout show on Saturday for residents of the Chicago and Milwaukee areas, who saw dozens of the funnel clouds and captured the outbreaks on photo and video. Lake Michigan could churn up isolated waterspouts again today, the Grand Rapids National Weather Service office said in its hazardous weather and nearshore marine forecasts. Cold unstable air and warm water, creating a 25 degree temperature difference, were the two important ingredients that came together Saturday, the National Weather Service said. The conditions produced “a rare outbreak of waterspouts stretching from off shore of Milwaukee, south to the Chicagoland area,” the NWS Milwaukee office said. –Mlive
