Around 3:50 this afternoon we received several reports of a tornado in St. Clair County. Thanks to viewers Boo and Tammy Booth for sharing a clip of what sparked the reports. In this screen grab you can see a low hanging cloud that certainly looks suspicious but this is not a funnel cloud. This is a scud cloud. These types of clouds are often mistaken as tornadoes or funnel clouds but they do not produce severe weather. They are a very common accessory to shower or storms on tropically moist days.
