Tropical funnels possible this weekend

The combination of a highly saturated atmosphere and storm updrafts could lead to the development of tropical funnels this weekend.

One such tropical funnel was reported around noon Saturday in Sulphur, LA.

These funnels are generally harmless as they rarely make contact with the ground. 

During the summer months when the atmospheric column is saturated and winds are light, these weak funnel clouds can develop.
