Lybster, Watten, Wick North and Pennyland Primary schools are forecasting the upcoming weather each week which is then published in the 2 local papers, the John O'Groat Journal and the Caithness Courier. At the end of each term the school with the most accurate forecasts are presented with £100 and a certificate for that term. This is the presentation evening at the Tempest cafe in Thurso and the winners were Pennyland School.

Funnel Cloud or Tornado? PDF Print E-mail

Cold-air funnel clouds (vortices) are usually short-lived and generally much weaker than the vortices produced by supercells. Although cold-air funnels rarely make ground contact, they may touch down briefly and become weak tornadoes or waterspouts.

Unlike the related phenomenon associated with severe thunderstorms, cold-air funnels are generally associated with partly cloudy skies in the wake of cold fronts, where atmospheric instability and moisture is sufficient to support towering cumulus clouds but not precipitation. The mixing of cooler air in the lower troposphere with air flowing in a different direction in the middle troposphere causes the rotation on a horizontal axis, which, when deflected vertically by atmospheric conditions, can become a funnel cloud.


The following photographs were taken by Jane McDonough of Latheron while out on a boat on the evening of 10th August 2010.





A great set of images that shows the dissipation of the funnel and some good detail while it is at it's largest.

Thank you so very much again Jane for donating them to this website.
