The turbulent weather this weekend resulted in the formation of waterspouts over Lake Michigan.

Viewer John Hearty submitted a video to ABC7 that he shot in Highland Park on Saturday.

He was at a gas station near the beach when he noticed a waterspout hovering over the lake. He went down to the shore and says it never actually touched the water.

Cool temperatures and the warm lake water help form the waterspouts.
