...Cold Air Funnels Possible This Evening...

There have been reports of cold air funnels this evening near the
Lakes in west Kentucky. These cold air funnels are developing
underneath showers that are moving west across the area.
Underneath these showers, spinning columns of air that look like
tornadoes may continue to develop. These funnels usually are very
brief and rarely touch the ground. If these funnels do touch down,
they most likely will not cause damage to life or property.

Cold air funnels are due to very cool air aloft associated with a
strong upper-level low pressure center that is moving eastward
across our region. Due to little or no wind shear, the cold air
funnels are usually weak and very brief.
