Environment Canada has issued a Weather Advisory for much of the Pembina and Red River Valleys, as well as Southeastern Manitoba, about the possibility of funnel clouds Tuesday.

"These types of funnel clouds are generated by weak rotation under rapidly growing clouds or weak thunderstorms," stated the Advisory. "This weak rotation is normally not a danger near the ground. However, there is a chance that this rotation could intensify and become a weak landspout tornado."

If conditions become more favourable for the development of landspout tornadoes, watches and warnings will be issued by Environment Canada.

Landspout tornadoes do not usually cause significant damage but can still be dangerous. They can be strong enough to topple trees, damage roofs or toss debris short distances. Treat any funnel cloud sighting seriously. Should a funnel cloud develop nearby, prepare to take shelter. These funnel clouds usually appear with little or no warning.
