Waterspout spotted in Texas City



A tropical air mass like this can produce weak, quick funnel clouds and waterspouts. They usually don't touch down, but if they do, it's generally quick.

We can expect the potential for more of these, with similar weather conditions and a chance of rain that continues through Saturday as tropical moisture moves this way.
