..BRIEF FUNNEL CLOUDS POSSIBLE LATE 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.  
 
IF THREATENING WEATHER APPROACHES, MOVE INDOORS TO A PLACE OF  
SAFETY. THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILL CONTINUE TO CLOSELY  
MONITOR THE SITUATION.
