Chief Meteorologist Jeff Lyons states these are extremely small storms and do not show up on the radar very well, if at all.

Earlier in the afternoon, Chief Meteorologist Jeff Lyons says it looks like a cold air funnel in Spencer County. He says they sometimes appear when we have very humid, rainy conditions, but not thunderstorms.

They tend to be weak and rarely touch down or cause any damaging winds.

Coltin Adkisson says his photo was from the Dale area. He says he was by AK Steel when he took it.
