...CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR FUNNEL CLOUDS THROUGH 8 PM CDT...

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.
