During the afternoon yesterday, a very small rope-like cold air funnel cloud formed on the front edge of a band of rain showers, at about 14:40. The formation occured just over Benarty Hill, and I managed to capture a still image of the formation here:

Whilst these formations are not terribly rare around the British Isles, they often go unnoticed and are often not captured. This is the first time one has been captured by the FifeWeather camera (to my knowledge), since it went online in September 2006.
