... Brief funnel clouds possible today...

Rich moisture across portions of southeast Texas... mainly along and
south of a line from Caldwell to Houston to High Island... could
support the development of brief funnel clouds with any showers
or thunderstorms that develop. These funnel clouds could briefly
touch down as either a weak tornado or offshore as a waterspout.
At 1105 am CDT... law enforcement reported a funnel cloud to the
east of Danbury in Brazoria County.

Please monitor the sky... radar... and future weather reports and be
alert for any funnel development. Report any occurrences to local
law enforcement or the National Weather Service.
