CLEVELAND — There's a mixture of colder air and warm water hovering around Lake Erie, which can only mean one thing: waterspouts!
Commonly referred to as "tornadoes over water" (although usually much less dangerous), waterspouts typically form from cumulus or cumulonimbus clouds and appear as spinning funnel shapes. They are a sight to see, especially on a beautiful day like today.
3News meteorologist Jason Frazer shared a few images of the spots from viewers on Twitter earlier today.
