    Funnel Clouds Reported Near Bernie, Missouri

    Submitted by

    Dee Loflin, SMT Manager/Editor

    Stoddard County, Missouri -  The National Weather Service in Paducah, KY has issued a PUBLIC INFO STATEMENT AT 7:05 P.M....COLD AIR FUNNELS WILL BE POSSIBLE THROUGH EARLY EVENING...

    A FEW REPORTS OF FUNNEL CLOUDS HAVE BEEN REPORTED NEAR BERNIE MISSOURI, LA CENTER KENTUCKY, AND NORTH OF WAYNE CITY, ILLINOIS LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY THIS EVENING.

    MOST OF THESE REPORTS HAVE COME FROM AREAS WHERE THERE IS LITTLE OR NO THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY AND VERY LIMITED CIRCULATION, IF ANY, ON RADAR.

    FUNNEL CLOUDS IN THIS ENVIRONMENT ARE USUALLY REFERRED TO AS COLD AIR FUNNELS.

    THESE COLD AIR FUNNELS ARE DEVELOPING UNDERNEATH A FEW SHOWERS THAT ARE MOVING ACROSS THE AREA. UNDERNEATH THESE SHOWERS, SPINNING COLUMNS OF AIR THAT LOOK LIKE TORNADOES MAY CONTINUE TO
    DEVELOP. THESE FUNNELS USUALLY ARE VERY BRIEF AND RARELY TOUCH THE GROUND. IF THESE FUNNELS DO TOUCH DOWN, THE MOST LIKELY WILL NOT CAUSE DAMAGE TO LIFE OR PROPERLY.

    COLD AIR FUNNELS ARE DUE TO VERY COOL AIR ALOFT, WARM MOIST AIR NEAR THE GROUND, AND ARE USUALLY IN ASSOCIATION WITH A STRONG AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IN THE UPPER LEVELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE. DUE TO
    LITTLE OR NO WIND SHEAR, THE COLD AIR FUNNELS ARE USUALLY WEAK AND VERY BRIEF.

    THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOES NOT ISSUE ANY WARNINGS FOR COLD AIR FUNNELS.

    SHOULD THERE BE A CIRCULATION THAT DEVELOPS MAY CAUSE HARM TO LIFE OR PROPERTY, THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILL ISSUE A TORNADO WARNING FOR THAT STORM.

    Stoddard County, Missouri - The National Weather Service in Paducah, Kentucky has issued a Weather Statement for Stoddard County.

    THERE IS A MODERATE RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH TONIGHT ACROSS PARTS OF SOUTHEAST MISSOURI... MAINLY WEST OF A LINE FROM DEXTER TO MARBLE HILL. THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE REMAINDER OF OUR REGION.

    SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE FORECAST TO DEVELOP OVER SOUTHERN MISSOURI TODAY... AND THEN MOVE EAST ACROSS THE QUAD STATE REGION TONIGHT. ACROSS THE MODERATE RISK AREA... THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR A SIGNIFICANT OUTBREAK OF SEVERE STORMS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING... WITH LARGE HAIL... DESTRUCTIVE STRAIGHT LINE WINDS... AND A FEW TORNADOES POSSIBLE. ACROSS THE SLIGHT RISK AREA... ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SEVERE STORMS ARE LIKELY. IN ADDITION... LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL ACCOMPANY ANY THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT.

    NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO REVIEW YOUR SEVERE WEATHER ACTION PLANS. MONITOR THE LATEST WEATHER INFORMATION AND BE READY TO IMPLEMENT THOSE PLANS.
