Special Statement
Issued: 9:40 AM CDT Jun. 28, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Tropical funnel clouds possible...

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.
