...CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR FUNNEL CLOUDS AND WEAK
BRIEF TORNADOES...

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.
