A line of showers capable of producing brief funnel clouds will
move through the Illinois River Valley this evening.

Atmospheric conditions exist this evening that favor the possible
formation of weak circulations on a pre-existing boundary. Some
of these circulations are occurring underneath developing showers,
where a funnel cloud may develop.

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.
