PULLMAN, Wash. — The National Weather Service (NWS) determined as many as five cold air funnel clouds were reported within 15 minutes in the Pullman area on Monday.
KREM 2 Meteorologist Thomas Patrick says NWS determined that none of the clouds touched down as a tornado.
“Numerous witnesses were unable to confirm a touch down. There was no evidence of damage or circulation on the ground," according to a storm survey performed by NWS.
The most well-defined funnel cloud occurred after a thunderstorm at about 3:05 p.m. on Monday., approximately four miles southeast of Pullman in the vicinity of Johnson Road.
The weather service said on Twitter that it had determined it was a cold air funnel based off of spotter reports and radar data.
Many KREM viewers in Pullman sent photos of a funnel cloud on Monday. Zoe Coffeehouse also posted a photo of a funnel cloud taken from its parking lot.
