WATCH: Potential funnel cloud spotted over NH town
LITTLETON - A small thunderstorm along the border between Vermont and New Hampshire likely produced a funnel cloud Wednesday morning.
Adam Sklarz caught the rotating clouds on camera at 10:10 a.m. Wednesday and sent the video into NH1.com.
The video shows clouds clearly rotating. The rotation may have been tight enough to briefly produce the funnel cloud seen in the video. There are no reports of this funnel hitting the ground (at which point it would be called a tornado) and no reports of damage from this storm.
Sklarz was in Littleton at the time, and the video was shot in the direction of Waterford, VT.
Sometimes, low-hanging clouds about the ground known as 'scud' are mistakenly identified as funnel clouds. This does not appear to be the case in this situation, with clear rotation in the video.
This is a poor area for coverage by Doppler radar. The radar in Gray, ME covers this region, but the height of the radar beam is nearly 7,000 feet. This means rotation in the lower levels of clouds is much harder to detect.
It's a poor location for radar coverage but here it is from the time the video was shot. Not very impressive, but video shows some rotation. pic.twitter.com/OVyDCk2I3T— Ryan Breton (@RyanBretonWX) June 21, 2017
