...WATERSPOUTS POSSIBLE OVER LAKE ONTARIO THIS MORNING...

CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR THE FORMATION OF WATERSPOUTS OVER LAKE
ONTARIO THIS MORNING. THE GREATEST POTENTIAL WILL BE FROM THE LOWER
NIAGARA RIVER TO GALLOO ISLAND

ANY WELL ORGANIZED SHOWER COULD SUPPORT A WATERSPOUT WITH LITTLE IF
ANY WARNING. DO NOT LET THE LACK OF LIGHTNING MISLEAD YOU INTO
THINKING THAT WATERSPOUTS ARE NOT POSSIBLE.

WATERSPOUTS HAVE THE ABILITY TO CAPSIZE SMALL BOATS. THOSE ON THE
LAKE SHOULD PAY PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO ANY HEAVIER SHOWERS.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

SEEK SAFE HARBOR IF A WATERSPOUT IS SPOTTED.
