...FUNNEL CLOUDS REPORTED NEAR TILLAMOOK...

At 4:25 PM PDT, emergency management in Tillamook reported a funnel cloud southwest of the city. It is unlikely the funnel cloud touched the ground and it has since dissipated.

The current weather pattern is favorable for what are called cold core funnel clouds. These funnels do not usually touch the ground. However, if they do touch the ground they are still dangerous tornadoes and can be damaging.

The threat of funnel clouds will continue through sunset.

...THE FLASH FLOOD WARNING FOR AREAS IN AND AROUND THE EAGLE CREEK BURN AREA IN NORTHWESTERN HOOD RIVER AND EAST CENTRAL MULTNOMAH COUNTIES HAS EXPIRED...

The heavy rain has ended, and flash flooding is no longer expected to pose a threat over the Eagle Creek Burn Area.

However, standing water could still pose minor problems. Please, do not drive through standing water, as this could be very dangerous. Turn around. Dont drown. It can be difficult to determine how deep the water may be, or even if the road surface is still intact due to washouts.
