    Several funnel clouds were sighted across Miami-Dade County on Friday, according to the National Weather Service in Miami.

    Helping make conditions ripe for funnel clouds was an east coast sea breeze that pushed slowly inland, with a few showers, said weather service meteorologist Kim Brabander.

    “The sea breeze is moving slowly, and the low-level winds are extremely light,” Brabander said.
