Montreal is famous for extremely bizarre weather. In one year, can we experience scorching 40° summers and bone-chilling winter temperatures -25° and lower! Apparently, we have to worry about tornadoes now, too.\nOk, I'll settle down - maybe not tornadoes per se, but a tornado's baby cousin. Over the weekend, travel bloggers and friends of MTL Blog, Steph & Flo spotted a dust devil that formed in the Old Port. This impressive natural phenomenon appeared for a brief instance and vanished just as quick.\nDust devils form when a swirling updraft of hot, dry air mixes with cooler air to create a twisting, tornado-like shape that is rarely dangerous, but still quite impressive. They only form under perfect conditions - when there's little wind on a flat, dusty plain.\nThe video, seen below, shows an impressive column of air swirling around a low-trafficked area in the Old Port.\n🌪Un dust devil (tourbillon de poussière/sable) s'est formé proche du vieux Montréal ! Ceci se produit par beau temps lorsque l'air sec est instable entre en rotation et soulève le sable. Impressionnant 🙂 .Posted by Les voyages de Steph & Flo on Sunday, August 4, 2019\nThis one was a little baby dust devil that dissipated shortly after it appeared. It huffed and puffed but didn't blow the house down! It rose to an impressive height, despite everything.\nDust devils can form anywhere on Earth but usually in temperate climates or summer conditions like we saw over the weekend. Yesterday, Montreal experienced a gorgeous day that wasn't too hot, not too cold and with almost no humidity.\nView this post on Instagram This thing got even bigger before we left. It was super cool! #dustdevil A post shared by Mrs. Altruda (@kelliealtruda) on Aug 4, 2019 at 11:54am PDT\nREAD ALSO: It's Going To Be Cold And Rainy All Week In Montreal\nWhile it's rare, some dust devils have been seen as large as 1000 metres tall. The largest devils can cause damage to property and be dangerous, but never come anywhere near the destructive force of a tornado.\nView this post on Instagram It's being nicknamed a "#coalnado" Incredible video of a “#DustDevil” at a coal mine in Elkhorn, WV Monday afternoon.
