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

ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS EXIST TODAY ACROSS SOUTH-CENTRAL ILLINOIS
THAT FAVOR THE POSSIBLE FORMATION OF WEAK CIRCULATIONS ON A
PRE-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 TOUCHDOWN. STAY ALERT
AND BE PREPARED TO MOVE TO A SAFE SHELTER IF A FUNNEL CLOUD APPROACHES
THE GROUND.
