...FUNNEL CLOUDS REPORTED NEAR TILLAMOOK...

At 4:25 PM PDT, emergency management in Tillamook reported a funnel
cloud southwest of the city. It is unlikely the funnel cloud touched
the ground and it has since dissipated.

The current weather pattern is favorable for what are called cold
core funnel clouds. These funnels do not usually touch the ground.
However, if they do touch the ground they are still dangerous
tornadoes and can be damaging.

The threat of funnel clouds will continue through sunset.
