...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. IF ONE DOES REACH THE SURFACE...IT IS
CALLED A LANDSPOUT. AND...IF A FUNNEL CLOUD OR LANDSPOUT IS
SPOTTED...PLEASE IMMEDIATELY REPORT IT TO THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE. IF A TORNADO WARNING WOULD BECOME NECESSARY...TAKE
APPROPRIATE ACTION.
