...Brief Landspout Tornado Sighted...

At 748 PM CDT, trained weather spotters reported a landspout tornado
to the northeast of Parks. Conditions continue to favor the
potential for landspouts as storms develop; however at this time it
is unknown which if any storm would produce a landspout. Any
landspouts which develop are expected to pose a limited threat.

Locations impacted include...
Quinter and Park.

To report severe weather, contact your nearest law enforcement
agency. They will send your report to the National Weather Service
office in Goodland.

Landspout tornadoes can form with a developing thunderstorm before
rain, hail, and even thunder is observed. Landspout tornadoes are not
usually associated with a wall cloud and are often difficult to
detect with weather radar.
