A rare funnel cloud has been spotted in Waikato, with several reports of the weather phenomenon being reported across the region, mainly to the east of Hamilton.

The funnel cloud was seen by several people who contacted Stuff on Monday afternoon.

WeatherWatch.co.nz says more isolated tornados are possible this afternoon in the upper North Island due to instability in the atmosphere plus warmer than average weather. There's also the risk of isolated thunderstorms.

Sheryl Barlow, of Morrinsville, was travelling to Hamilton with her husband Ron when they spotted what looked like a tornado near Eureka, west of Hamilton, on State Highway 26. Read more
