Special Weather Statement issued July 2 at 8:43AM CDT by NWS Lake Charles LA

Posted at 8:43 AM, Jul 02, 2019

The combination of a very moist and unstable tropical airmass with
a light and variable vertical wind profile will provide for the
development of tropical funnel clouds, especially where rain-
cooled boundaries…known as outflow boundaries…and the
seabreeze collide.

These tropical funnel clouds are usually short-lived and do not
reach the ground. If the funnel cloud becomes more severe and
reaches the ground…minor damage may occur…and a tornado
warning will likely be issued.

Stay tuned for later statements and updates on this weather
situation.
