...TROPICAL FUNNELS AND WATERSPOUTS POSSIBLE TODAY...

VERY LIGHT WINDS IN THE LOWER LAYERS OF THE ATMOSPHERE WILL
COMBINE WITH TROPICAL MOISTURE...RESULTING IN AN ATMOSPHERE
CAPABLE OF PRODUCING FUNNEL CLOUDS AND POSSIBLE WATERSPOUTS.
ALTHOUGH THESE TYPE OF FUNNELS AND WATERSPOUTS ARE NOT AS STRONG
AS TORNADOES IN THE SOUTHERN PLAINS...THEY CAN STILL BE DANGEROUS
TO BOATERS AND MARINERS.

MARINERS SHOULD REMAIN ALERT FOR POSSIBLE WATERSPOUT FORMATION.
WATERSPOUTS ARE TYPICALLY SLOW MOVING AND CAN BE EASILY AVOIDED.
HOWEVER...THEY CONTAIN WINDS CAPABLE OF OVERTURNING A BOAT.
IF YOU SEE A WATERSPOUT...HEAD TO PORT OR MOVE AWAY FROM THE
SHOWER OR STORM PRODUCING IT.
