…CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR FUNNEL CLOUDS…

CURRENT ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF FUNNEL CLOUDS. USUALLY…THESE FUNNEL CLOUDS CAN FORM FROM SHOWERS AND WEAK THUNDERSTORMS. THESE FUNNELS ARE NORMALLY BRIEF…DROP ONLY A FEW HUNDRED FEET FROM THE CLOUD BASE…AND RARELY BECOME A TORNADO OR CAUSE DAMAGE. HOWEVER…IF ONE IS SPOTTED…PLEASE REPORT IT IMMEDIATELY TO LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR RELAY TO THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE. IF A TORNADO WARNING WOULD BECOME NECESSARY…TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION.
