...Funnel Clouds Possible Through Early This Evening...

Atmospheric conditions are favorable through early this evening
for the development of funnel clouds in portions of east central
Illinois and south of the Kankakee River in northwest Indiana.
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 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 cloud
sightings to the nearest law enforcement agency for relay to the
National Weather Service.
