Central Alberta under funnel cloud advisory

Funnel clouds are expected to develop from Red Deer northeastward toward Lloydminster.

A funnel cloud advisory is in effect for central Alberta with people from Red Deer to Lloydminster in effect.

A weather statement from Environment Canada says Monday's conditions are favorable for the development of funnel clouds.

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.
