Around 14:20 UTC multiple storm cells initiated in the vicinity of Riga. Around 14:35 UTC cumulonimbus cloud developed just above the city center. A few minutes later under a clear cloud base, a strong wind gusts lifted a lot of dust in the air. At 14:40 UTC strong rotation of dust started above the ground and at 14:42 UTC a funnel developed. People nearby reported sudden strong wind gusts accompanied by the sound of snapping tree branches. Dust and debris flew in a rotating pattern around the funnel for a few minutes. Analyzing available videos, the funnel was making ground contact, but for a very brief moment.
