Many storm spotters and KHQA viewers reported funnel clouds in Warren and McDonough Counties in Illinois Sunday afternoon.

The National Weather Service confirmed there have been no reported touchdowns nor damage associated with these storms.

Most of the reports came from the Good Hope and Roseville areas. Viewers captured the funnels with their cell phone cameras.

A cold front pushed through the Tri-States causing thunderstorms to form. Storms interacting with the cold front and an outflow boundary caused the funnels to form.

A Marginal Risk for severe storms continues Sunday afternoon. The strongest storms may have small hail and gusty winds. Once the cold front clears the area this evening, things will calm down and temperatures will return to more seasonable levels for Monday.

A heat wave will start Tuesday with air temperatures approaching 100, and heat indexes swelling into the 110s possible by Thursday. More information at
