At 1230 PM, trained weather spotters reported a funnel cloud north
of Champaign near Thomasboro.

Atmospheric conditions exist today across east central Illinois
that favor the possible formation of weak circulations. Some of
these circulations are occurring underneath developing showers and
thunderstorms, where a funnel cloud may develop. Once the rain
begins, the funnel cloud 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 touch down. Stay alert
and be prepared to move to a safe shelter if a funnel cloud approaches
the ground.
