According to the National Weather Service, waterspouts are similar to tornadoes over water and are generally broken into two categories: fair weather waterspouts and tornadic waterspouts.

Tornadic waterspouts are simply tornadoes that form over water or move from land to water and have the same characteristics as a land tornado. They are associated with severe thunderstorms and are often accompanied by high winds and seas, large hail, and frequent dangerous lightning. Fair Weather waterspouts are usually less dangerous phenomena.
