Meteorology juniors Lauren Replogle, Carlos Martinez, Dylan Smith and Edmar Ruano watch the funnel clouds form from the top floor of the Eller Oceanography and Meteorology Building Monday.

Two funnel clouds were spotted in the Bryan-College Station area around 5 p.m. Monday.

Don Conlee, instructional associate professor of atmospheric sciences, said because the funnel clouds did not touch the ground, they are not considered tornadoes.

“Even if these were to touch the ground, they would be considered non-supercell tornadoes,” Conlee said. “These are not the destructive supercell ones that people usually think of when they think of typical tornadoes.”

Conlee said while non-supercell tornadoes are typically not destructive, they can still cause damage and people should exercise caution.
“We’re not under a watch right now, but people should definitely show caution, especially if they’re driving,” Conlee said.
