4-21-2012: Western MN Funnel Clouds & Tornado

The morning started out by teaching the Skywarn Spotter Training at the WROC in Morris, MN. The training had a very good turnout.

After some morning showers, the sun popped out just enough to spark some instability in the air.

Early afternoon we watched the radar and saw reports of funnel clouds associated with the line of storms that seemed to pop up on the radar. Nick and I quickly got into the car and quickly raced to the west and captured these photos.
