...Brief Funnel Clouds Possible Late This Afternoon...

Atmospheric conditions are favorable for the development of funnel
clouds late this afternoon. These funnel clouds normally only
protrude a few hundred feet downward from the parent cloud, rotate
or spin like a top, and last a few minutes before dissipating.

These funnel clouds rarely touch the ground and typically do not
pose any sort of hard. The atmospheric conditions that these
funnel clouds develop in do not support strong, damaging
tornadoes. However, on extremely rare occasions, these funnels can
briefly touch the ground and produce very minimal, if any, damage.

If threatening weather approaches, move indoors to a place of
safety. The National Weather Service will continue to closely
monitor the situation.
