A large waterspout was spotted over Lake Erie Monday morning.

Mark Allenbaugh, a lawyer located in North Kingsville, Ohio, says his son saw and took a picture of the waterspout shown here.

At the time the picture was taken, the waterspout was located a few miles outside of Ashtabula Harbor.

Over the past couple of days, waterspouts have been in the news, from Lake Michigan this past Saturday to Lake Erie today.

Waterspout typically form because of temperature differences between water and air above it. This past weekend, relatively cool air moved over the relatively warm Great Lakes waters, setting up a favorable weather environment for these phenomena to form.
