TUCSON - Three viewers sent in photos of what appears to be a funnel cloud forming in the sky south of Tucson this morning.
News 4 Tucson meteorologist Jeff Beamish confirmed that it was a funnel cloud - a cloud of condensed water droplets forming a column of rotating wind extending from the base of the cloud. If a funnel cloud touches the ground, it becomes a tornado.
Jeff says the funnel cloud formed at about 10:54 a.m. southwest of Tucson. It did not touch down or cause any damage, he says.
