It's funnel cloud weather, the National Weather Service is warning today, in a special weather statement -- but there probably won't be another tornado. Probably.
"The combination of an unseasonably cool upper level low pressure system and the strongest sunshine and surface heating of the year is causing a very unstable air mass near the surface," the weather service states on its website. "As a result ... strong updrafts within heavier showers may result in weak rotation and brief cold core funnel clouds today. These funnel clouds are fairly typical in this weather pattern and rarely touch the ground as tornadoes."
