Fancy a funnel cloud was observed on Tuesday residents Bexhill, Hastings and other towns.
As explained to the British meteorologists, in contrast to the summer storm clouds cumulus clouds cold season is usually short-lived and generally much weaker.
Descending from the clouds rarely reaches the boundary of the land. They arise in the wake of a cold front, where instability and moisture is sufficient to form cumulus clouds, but not enough rainfall. Mixing of cool air from the lower troposphere with air moving from the middle troposphere, is in the form of horizontal vortex. But sometimes it collapses into a vertical plane, and then there are funnel clouds. Such phenomena are common on the Pacific coast of the U.S., especially in spring and autumn.
