Bravo-excellent observing, photography, NWS verification with radar couplet. I attached a pix of brief funnel spotted ~330PM over Tramanto.

You should investigate the same possible type event in E Mesa/Gilbert along the US60 around 530/545pm. Very similar activity/rotation/storm

Landspouts are very weak, although look neat. The downbursts and flooding caused all the incredible damage today.

What is the formal scientific definition of landspout? Are they typically detectable by Doppler radar and formed by mesocyclones?

I was in Mesa looking at the radar and had to go outside based on what I saw. Started recording and only got the funnel rising back up. From OKC
