...CONDITIONS FAVORABLE FOR FUNNEL CLOUDS...

Current atmospheric conditions over east central and northeast
Nebraska and western Iowa support the development of funnel
clouds. From now until 6 PM...conditions will become favorable
for funnel clouds from east of a line from Ashland to Pender and
north of US 34.

Usually, these funnel clouds can form in the early
stages of developing 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.

People should monitor the weather situation closely. Listen for
possible warnings, and be prepared to take appropriate action
should severe weather threaten.
