Brief Funnel Clouds Possible This Afternoon.

Atmospheric conditions are favorable for the development of funnel clouds late this afternoon. These funnel clouds normally only protrude a few hundred feet downward from the parent cloud, rotate or spin like a top, and last a few minutes before dissipating. These funnel clouds rarely touch the ground and typically do not pose any sort of hazard. The atmospheric conditions that these funnel clouds develop in do not support strong, damaging tornadoes. However, on extremely rare occasions, these funnels can briefly touch the ground and produce very minimal, if any, damage. In addition to funnel clouds, isolated strong thunderstorms are possible. These thunderstorms may produce locally heavy rain and wind gusts up to 40 mph.

Instructions: If threatening weather approaches, move indoors to a place of safety. The National Weather Service will continue to closely monitor the situation.
