...CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR FUNNEL CLOUDS...

CURRENT ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF FUNNEL
CLOUDS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE SHOWERS AND STORMS MOVING ACROSS
CENTRAL IOWA. 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.
