... Conditions are favorable for funnel clouds...

Current atmospheric conditions support the development of funnel
clouds across much of Iowa this afternoon. Usually... these funnel
clouds can form from showers and weak thunderstorms. These funnels
are normally brief... drop only a few hundred feet from the cloud
base... and rarely become a tornado or cause damage. However... if
one is spotted... please immediately report it to the National
Weather Service. If a Tornado Warning would become
necessary... take appropriate action.
