Special Weather Statement
The National Weather Service has issued a Special Weather Statement for possible cold air funnels. A funnel cloud was observed near Tillamook, OR earlier this afternoon, but has since dissipated. A cool and unstable air mass over the region could produce additional cold air funnel clouds. These funnel clouds do not usually touch the ground. However, if they do touch the ground they can be dangerous and damaging.
Keep an eye on the sky today!
In other news, mentions of funnel clouds make me think of funnel cakes. The lack of funnel cakes in my office right now make me sad.
