The storms will reportedly be capable of producing strong wind gusts of up to 90 kilometres per hour and torrential rainfall of 50 mm within a single hour.
"These types of funnel clouds are generated by weak rotation under rapidly growing clouds or weak thunderstorms. This weak rotation is normally not a danger near the ground. However, there is a chance that this rotation could intensify and become a weak landspout tornado," the weather advisory stated.
Residents are being warned to continue to monitor conditions and take shelter if they see threatening weather.
