A weather advisory has been issued for Strathmore and surrounding area.

According to Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) we will possibly see funnel clouds this afternoon.

"These types of funnel clouds are generated by weak rotation under rapidly growing clouds or weak thunderstorms. 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," ECCC stated on it's website.

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

"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."

ECCC explained that residents need to 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.
