Brooklyn news new York weather

Tuesday, July 17, the new Yorkers had the opportunity to see in the sky an unusual atmospheric phenomenon, which many took to be the so-called “baby tornado“, that is, the nascent tornado.

Funnel clouds formed over the Brooklyn and looked as if in the next few minutes the city will be visited by a real tornado. All this occurred against the background of pouring rain and thunderstorms, which occupied new York on Tuesday.

The specialists of the National weather service (National Weather Service – NWS) later explained that this atmospheric phenomenon is called a tubular cloud. In fact, it is a tornado that reaches the earth. Despite the menacing look, this cloud is virtually harmless. But things can change, if his power is big enough to reach the earth. At this point “tube” turns into a real tornado.

Now the Big Apple is at the mercy of the weather. It is expected that the storm accompanied by heavy showers, thunderstorms and gusty winds will be a nuisance to the residents of new York until late at night. Further, the situation should improve, and the rest of the week holds good weather.
