Lake Michigan Waterspout During Winter

lake michigan waterspout winterYesterday was a very cold day on Lake Michigan but that does not mean there are no waterspouts.  Yesterday near Belgium WI this photograph was taken of a waterspout coming up from Icy cold air above Lake Michigan.  The region is currently experiencing the coldest cold snap in the last two years, but the lake is still warm from the mild winter so far.  The two temperatures interacting produced this waterspout.

Kinda cool huh?  You can view some waterspout videos here!
