There have been several waterspouts spotted over Lake Michigan this afternoon.
The National Weather Service says they've received numerous reports of waterspouts from the northern half of Lake Michigan and atmospheric conditions are favorable for the formation of waterspouts with the stronger showers and thunderstorms that develop.
Forecasters say no reports have been received from over the bay of Green Bay but conditions are favorable for the formation of waterspouts there as well.
They say upper level winds were causing the showers and waterspouts to drift to the southwest and some may approach the shoreline. Conditions will generally cause the waterspouts to dissipate before reaching the shore although they say it's possible the better developed waterspouts could work ashore before dissipating.
Any waterspout that reaches the shore would be considered a tornado but such tornadoes are much weaker than the dangerous ones that form with typical thunderstorms.
