A storm that rolled in to southern California on Wednesday was powerful enough to form a funnel cloud, according to the National Weather Service.

A local woman sent in photos showing the formation, which she spotted around 7:30 a.m. from Hazard Center, looking west out to Point Loma.

The National Weather Service took a look at the photos and confirmed there were favorable conditions for a funnel cloud. They added that they also received a report from a pilot who spotted the funnel cloud around the same time in the same area.

The cold Pacific storm that rolled in Wednesday morning brought quick bursts of heavy rain and snow to San Diego County. By midday, the fits and starts had calmed, although a Winter Weather Advisory remained in effect until 5 p.m.
