Statement as of 1:07 PM CDT on August 31, 2015

... Tropical funnel clouds possible...

At 100 PM... the National Weather Service received a report of a
funnel cloud in the vicinity of Iowa in eastern Calcasieu Parish.

A very moist and unstable tropical airmass is in place across the
area. Meanwhile... the vertical wind profile over the area is light
and variable. These conditions are favorable for the development
of tropical funnel clouds... especially where rain cooled
boundaries... known as outflow boundaries... and the seabreeze
collide.

These tropical funnel clouds are usually short-lived and do not
reach the ground. If The Funnel cloud becomes more severe and
reaches the ground... minor damage may occur... and a Tornado
Warning will likely be issued.

Stay tuned for later statements and updates on this weather
situation.
