Waterspout outbreak offshore Corsica – October 7, 2013

Many waterspouts formed under the convective cells around Corsica (TSTM area in today’s Day 1 outlook) this morning between 9h and 11h CEST. Steep low level lapse rates under the upper low contributed to this spectacular event. French photographer Sylvestre Sisco captured the event.
