...FUNNEL CLOUDS SIGHTED OVER WEST-CENTRAL ILLINOIS...

ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS EXIST ACROSS THE AREA TODAY THAT FAVOR THE
POSSIBLE FORMATION OF WEAK CIRCULATIONS...ALONG AN EXISTING BOUNDARY.
SOME OF THESE CIRCULATIONS ARE OCCURRING UNDERNEATH DEVELOPING
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS...WHERE A FUNNEL CLOUD MAY DEVELOP. ONCE THE
RAIN BEGINS...THE FUNNEL CLOUD DISSIPATES.

LOW HANGING CLOUDS CAN ALSO APPEAR TO DIP UP AND DOWN AT TIMES...BUT
THEY WILL NOT SHOW SIGNS OF ANY RAPID ROTATION. AN ACTUAL FUNNEL
CLOUD WILL EXHIBIT SPINNING IN A COUNTER CLOCKWISE DIRECTION.

IN RARE INSTANCES...THESE FUNNELS MAY BRIEFLY TOUCH DOWN. STAY
ALERT... AND BE PREPARED TO MOVE TO A SAFE SHELTER...IF A FUNNEL
CLOUD APPROACHES THE GROUND.
