...FUNNEL CLOUDS POSSIBLE THIS EVENING...

ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF
ISOLATED FUNNEL CLOUDS...ASSOCIATED WITH THE SHOWER ACTIVITY OVER
PARTS OF EAST CENTRAL ILLINOIS AND NORTHWEST INDIANA. THESE
FUNNEL CLOUDS NORMALLY 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 HAZARD. THE ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS THESE FUNNELS
ARE DEVELOPING 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.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILL CONTINUE TO CLOSELY MONITOR THE
SITUATION. PLEASE FORWARD REPORTS OF FUNNEL SIGHTINGS TO THE
NEAREST LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY FOR RELAY TO THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE.
