1241 PM CDT sun Aug 28 2016 /141 PM EDT sun Aug 28 2016/

... Funnel clouds possible early this afternoon...

Atmospheric conditions are favorable for the development of
funnel clouds south of the Interstate 80 corridor early this
afternoon. These funnel clouds normally protrude a few hundred
feet downward from the parent cloud... rotate or slowly 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 these funnels
are developing in do not support 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. Please forward reports of funnel sightings
to the nearest law enforcement agency for relay to the National
Weather Service.
