...FUNNEL CLOUDS POSSIBLE OVER CENTRAL AND PORTIONS OF WESTERN
NORTH DAKOTA THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY THIS EVENING...

SCATTERED SHOWERS WITH A FEW WEAK THUNDERSTORMS HAVE DEVELOPED
OVER CENTRAL AND PORTIONS OF WESTERN NORTH DAKOTA THIS
AFTERNOON...WHICH HAVE PRODUCED A FEW FUNNEL CLOUDS.

THESE FUNNEL CLOUDS WERE NOT ASSOCIATED WITH SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS.
THEY ARE FORMED BY SHOWERS OR THUNDERSHOWERS WHEN UNIQUE
METEOROLOGICAL CONDITIONS EXIST.

THESE TYPES OF FUNNEL CLOUDS ARE USUALLY SHORT LIVED. HOWEVER...THEY
CAN AND OCCASIONALLY DO TOUCH THE GROUND AND CAUSE MINOR DAMAGE.
BECAUSE OF THIS POSSIBILITY...IF YOU SEE ONE OF THESE FUNNEL
CLOUDS TAKE COVER IMMEDIATELY.
