Environment Canada has issued an advisory, saying conditions are favourable to the formation of funnel clouds on Wednesday afternoon.

A storm headed through the region is bringing along short, but heavy bursts of rain and wind.

As for the funnel clouds, forecasters say they will be very weak, and likely won't develop into a full fledged tornado. Even if they do touch down, the chance of damage will be minimal.

In a release, Environment Canada says "Funnel clouds have been reported near Wheatley and Leamington, near the western shoreline of Lake Erie.

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."

The storm is moving from the west to the east fairly quickly and should be out of our region by this evening.
