...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 IMMEDIATELY
REPORT IT TO THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE. IF A TORNADO WARNING WOULD
BECOME NECESSARY...TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION.
