Viewer Kelly Eder snapped a photo of a funnel cloud that formed off Makaha Tuesday.

Funnel clouds are rotating, funnel-shaped clouds that don’t touch the ground. They require light wind conditions and unstable weather, and generally form in the afternoon when temperatures are higher.

If a funnel cloud hits the ground, it would be a tornado. If it touches water, it would be called a waterspout.
