Against my better judgement, i have decided to post this here in the hope i can get some answers. I tried searching on google but the only page that
seemed to have an answer (or a similar question) was not working. And if this is in the wrong forum, sorry...had no idea where to post it.
My son (15) came home from school yesterday and said he had something to tell me but that it would probably sound absurd.
He said he was walking across the playground and then, about 20ft away fom him, he saw what he described as a mini tornado seemingly arise from the
ground. It got to about 7ft high and then died down after a few seconds. He said it was clearly defined by the swirling dust and bits of rubbish, and
he clearly saw an orange bag being twirled around and around with it.
What is more interesting is that there were a couple of girls walking near it and they sort of jumped back with a "woah" expression on their faces.
But when he asked his friends if they had seen anything, they said no...and no-one else seems to have seen it either.
It wasn't windy yesterday, just a slight breeze....and my son is not lying or making it up, i know this for a fact. If anything, he seemed a bit
weirded out by it.
So i need some help from the weather experts....was this possible? We live in the UK, London area if that's any help.
