Dark clouds over Fayetteville Monday

Shortly after the severe weather sirens sounded in Fayetteville Monday afternoon, Chris Sweigart saw this funnel-shaped cloud formation along Ga. Highway 85 just north of the courthouse square. This photo is looking north along Glynn Street in front of Allen Vigil Ford. There were no reports of an actual touchdown of a tornado as rain bands from the remnants of tropical Storm Lee passed through. Photo/Chris Sweigert.
