THE METEOROLOGICAL CONDITIONS TODAY SUPPORT THE RAPID AND SUDDEN  
DEVELOPMENT OF FUNNEL CLOUDS AND EVEN BRIEF WEAK TORNADOES...WHICH  
MAY APPEAR WITH LITTLE OR NO WARNING. THESE MAY EVEN OCCUR FROM  
JUST RAIN SHOWERS...WITHOUT A THUNDERSTORM AND LIGHTNING IN THE  
VICINITY.  
 
THESE FUNNEL CLOUDS ARE GENERALLY WEAK AND SHORT LIVED... AND VERY  
RARELY TOUCH DOWN. THOSE THAT DO REACH THE GROUND BECOME WEAK  
TORNADOES (WINDS OFTEN 50 MPH OR LESS) THAT GENERALLY PRODUCE ONLY  
MINOR DAMAGE. IF FUNNEL CLOUDS ARE SIGHTED TODAY...PLAY IT SAFE AND  
GET INSIDE A STURDY STRUCTURE IMMEDIATELY.
