Landspout Tornado (12/8)

Small landspout tornado observed in Palm beach County near South Bay east of Highway 27 in Florida! This was a small tornado (most likely EF-0) that formed along the lake-breeze boundary and under low-topped convective cells.

The landspout lasted about 10 minutes and weakened before reaching Highway 27. In the picture, a clear ground circulation is visible and funnel above it on the parent convective shower - A tornado is a "tornado" - And to much amazement on such a fair-weather day!
