…Funnel clouds possible this afternoon…

A very buoyant air mass coupled with intersecting boundaries will create a favorable environment for funnel clouds this afternoon. Conditions won’t change much through Friday so funnel clouds will also be possible on Wednesday…Thursday and Friday. Funnel clouds do occasionally stretch to the ground and become short lived tornadoes. Persons who observe a funnel cloud should seek shelter as a precaution.
