Special Statement
Issued: 4:03 PM EDT Jun. 21, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Funnel clouds possible through early this evening...

Atmospheric conditions are favorable for the development of funnel
clouds, with the most favored area for these being south of a
Dixon to Morris to Rensselaer line. 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 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 cloud
sightings to the nearest law enforcement agency for relay to the
National Weather Service.
