…Skinny Funnel Clouds May Develop Today…

Atmospheric conditions are favorable for the development of skinny funnel clouds. 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.
