BATON ROUGE - Residents of Baton Rouge submitted images of a tropical funnel cloud that was visible in the sky on Tuesday afternoon.

Viewers who were in the area said the cloud quickly dissipated. There have been no reports of damage. Meteorologist Josh Eachus has said a "backdoor cold front" will bring sun and lower humidity to the area as the week goes on.

Eachus also noted that the weather event can't be referred to as a tornado unless it touches ground. Tropical funnel clouds are a somewhat common sighting in the region during the summer, according to Eachus.
