Funnel Clouds Possible Through Early This Evening.

Atmospheric conditions are favorable for the development of funnel clouds this afternoon into early this evening, with the most favored area being south of US 24 in northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio this afternoon. 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 rare occasions, funnel clouds can briefly touch the ground and produce very minimal, if any, damage. If threatening weather approaches, move indoors to a place of safety. The National Weather Service will continue to closely monitor the situation.
