A waterspout has appeared out on the waters in Navarre, Fla., according to reports.

Photos of the weather phenomenon were uploaded to Twitter and Facebook on Tuesday.

The waterspout appeared to form earlier around noon.

WDSU-TV reported that there was also a possible waterspout near Chalmette.

The National Weather Service said it’s received reports of the funnel cloud.

“A very moist and unstable tropical airmass is in place across the area,” the NWS said, according to WDSU. “Meanwhile, the vertical wind profile over the area is light and variable. Conditions are favorable for the development of tropical funnel clouds, where rain cooled boundaries, known as outflow boundaries, and the seabreeze collide.”

 

 

AP weather update: New Mexico to get share of Tropical Storm Odile  

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Heavy rains are expected to strike the state this week thanks to remnants of Tropical Storm Odile (oh-DEEL’).

The National Weather Service said severe weather from the Odile will move across most of northern and central New Mexico bringing possible flooding and thunderstorms

Flash flood watches already are in effect through Tuesday evening in parts of northern and central New Mexico along the Rio Grande and in the state’s southwest mountains. Forecasters say the storms will be capable of producing 1 to 3 inches of rain during short periods, creating the threat of flash flooding.

Ortero County in southern New Mexico may see flooding Wednesday as severe weather could overtop spillways at Silver and Mescalero Lakes.

A weakening Tropical Storm Odile pushed up Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula early Tuesday.
