Waterspout in Tampa Bay

Waterspout in Tampa Bay that doesn’t even look real, what the!

You’re probably thinking what the hell is that…to be quite honest, so am I.

Lets see what WikiPedia has to say!

A waterspout is an intense columnar vortex (usually appearing as a funnel-shaped cloud) that occurs over a body of water, connected to a cumuliform cloud. In the common form, it is a non-supercell tornado over water.

Waterspouts do not suck up water; the water seen in the main funnel cloud is actually water droplets formed by condensation.

Waterspouts have a five-part life cycle: formation of a dark spot on the water surface, spiral pattern on the water surface, formation of a spray ring, development of the visible condensation funnel, and ultimately decay.

Ah, now I get it…maybe.
