... Funnel cloud sighted near the Taylorville Airport...

A spotter sighted a funnel cloud near the Taylorville Airport around
250 PM CDT. A broken line of strong thunderstorms near the I-55 corridor
will track east southeast toward I-57 during the next few hours. These
thunderstorms could produce funnel clouds along with heavy rains and
frequent lightning.

Atmospheric conditions exist across the area this afternoon that favor the
possible formation of weak circulations... along an existing boundary.
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.
