...Funnel clouds sighted over the area...
There have been several sightings of funnel clouds through the
Kansas City area. Atmospheric conditions exist that favor the
possible formation of weak circulations on a pre-existing
boundary that extends from the Kansas City area into northeastern
Missouri. Some of these circulations are occurring underneath
developing showers, where a funnel cloud may develop. Once the
rain begins, the funnel cloud usually dissipates.
Low hanging clouds can also appear to dip up and down at times,
but they will not show signs of any rapid rotation. An actual
funnel cloud will exhibit spinning in a counter-clockwise direction.
In rare instances these funnels may briefly touchdown. Stay alert
and be prepared to move to a safe shelter if a funnel cloud
approaches the ground.
