Some parts of southern Saskatchewan are under a special weather advisory.
According to Environment Canada, conditions are good for funnel clouds to form.
Glenn, who was working southeast of Regina on Highway 33, told News Talk Radio he spotted a funnel cloud Thursday afternoon.
“In the sky to the southwest of us, there was a funnel cloud that came down from the sky,” Glenn said, adding the cloud almost touched the ground. “The funnel cloud was evident for, I’d say … five to 10 minutes, somewhere in that time range.”
Terri Lang, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, said funnel clouds don’t usually touch down.
“Funnel clouds, for the most part, do not touch down. They usually stay above and then go back into the cloud,” she said, adding the clouds are more likely to appear during certain times of the day.
“They usually happen in the early part of the afternoon as all the thunderstorms are bubbling up.”
Lang said when funnel clouds do touch down, they form what is called a land spout tornado.
“For the most part (land spouts) are very … weak, but they can do damage so people should be aware.”
The meteorologist urged people to be careful in areas where they see one of these clouds forming.
