Weak funnel cloud catches the attention of residents near Palmyra
PALMYRA - A storm cell near Palmyra produced a few weak funnel clouds Thursday afternoon. None of the funnel clouds touched ground or developed into full tornadoes.
The National Weather Service Office in Valley received several photos of the funnel cloud, including one from Sean Humphrey who said a funnel cloud south of Eagle was "spinning up and down. It's trying to rope out but looks like its weakening."
The funnel clouds developed due to the storms proximity to a boundary. None of the funnel clouds lasted long.
In other news, the NWS says a minor drought is developing in portions of eastern Nebraska and western Iowa. The region continues to clean-up after flooding in March. A flood warning remains in effect until further notice for the Missouri River at Nebraska City, south to Rulo.
