There is a threat of funnel clouds or wall clouds and tornadoes or waterspouts in your area. Now is a good time to make sure you have your weather reporting criteria information available.

Please call the National Weather Service at (800) 882-1431 if you observe weather conditions that meet reporting criteria.
Skywarn Weather Spotters -
Some thunderstorms have developed across parts of western Washington this afternoon. Doppler weather radar is showing some hail and some wind shear in selected storms meaning the possibility of wall clouds, funnel clouds and perhaps a brief tornado or waterspout.
This is a good time for you to monitor our web site and the Doppler weather radar output, and then when good radar echoes are near you, please look at outside and monitor the passing storm.
Call us on our toll-free weather spotter 800 number if you suspect viewing a wall cloud, funnel cloud, or even a tornado or waterspout. Any hail of 1/4 inch diameter as well. Our toll-free number is on your criteria sheet.
The thunderstorms with these conditions are expected to continue until close to sunset this evening. Thanks!
Thank you for volunteering to be a spotter for the National Weather Service. Your information is quite important to us during significant weather events.
