MESA, AZ — Residents from around the East Valley reported funnel-cloud like formations during Tuesday's storms.
ABC15 Meteorologist Iris Hermosillo said the formations are known as "cold air funnels."
As an area of low pressure moves in, a combination of cool air and winds flowing in different directions help form these funnels, Iris explained.
The clouds, however, are not tornadoes.
