Atmospheric conditions are favorable for the development of funnel
clouds in conjunction with isolated showers. The area favored for
these includes much of Livingston, Ford, and Iroquois Counties
as well as southern portions of Kankakee County. 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.
