...FUNNEL CLOUDS SIGHTED OVER ODESSA...

WE HAVE RECEIVED SEVERAL SIGHTINGS FROM THE PUBLIC OF FUNNEL CLOUDS
NEAR ODESSA SINCE 130 PM. THESE FUNNEL CLOUDS ARE OCCURRING ALONG A
VERY WEAK COLD FRONT THAT LIES FROM NEAR KIRKSVILLE THROUGH PLEASANT
HILL.

ANY ADDITIONAL FUNNEL CLOUDS WHICH OCCUR THIS AFTERNOON WITHIN THIS
CORRIDOR WILL BE VERY SMALL AND EXTREMELY UNLIKELY TO REACH THE
GROUND AND CAUSE ANY DAMAGE DUE TO A STABLE LAYER OF AIR THAT LIES
JUST ABOVE THE GROUND.

OTHER 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.
