  1. Yes indeed. Deleted my original post to which you responded because I keep trying to embed my tweet but no luck. Here's the link again for anyone interested: edit: of course now it works lol
  2. FWIW, these are largely riding the easternmost fringe of the Valley.
  3. Good to hear you're safe. Debris on radar says there was 100% a touchdown; question now is the exact path. The debris sig went directly over Ooltewah proper.
  4. Sh*t, is Mr. Bob still in Ooltewah? Or am I imagining things?
  5. Trying to line up the CC drop with Google Maps. This thing came awfully close to Hamilton Place.
  6. ...TORNADO EMERGENCY FOR OOLTEWAH AND COLLEGEDALE... ...A TORNADO WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1145 PM EDT FOR SOUTHEASTERN HAMILTON COUNTY... At 1131 PM EDT, a confirmed large and destructive tornado was located near Cohutta, or 7 miles northeast of Ringgold, moving east at 45 mph. TORNADO EMERGENCY for OOLTEWAH AND COLLEGEDALE. This is a PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SITUATION. TAKE COVER NOW! HAZARD...Deadly tornado. SOURCE...Radar confirmed tornado. IMPACT...You are in a life-threatening situation. Flying debris may be deadly to those caught without shelter. Mobile homes will be destroyed. Considerable damage to homes, businesses, and vehicles is likely and complete destruction is possible.
  7. TDS passed right over Ooltewah Eyes for Cleveland next
  8. Agreed on all counts. Bring on severe season.
  9. The first wave strengthened as it moved north and east, bringing quite a bit of lightning to the Tri-Cities. We had roughly five minutes of absolutely torrential rain with a breeze that sent sheets onto the window. It sounded for all the world like someone spraying the window with a garden hose from a few feet away. As for the second wave which featured the line responsible for the warning around Knoxville, I saw velocities as high as 84 MPH depicted just prior to the warning's issuance. KMRX's beam height is roughly 2500-3000 ft at that point, so there was likely no ground truth. That said... 0100 AM NON-TSTM WND GST 4.3 W GATLINBURG 35.72N 83.57W 12/30/2019 M84 MPH SEVIER TN MESONET COVE MOUNTAIN OBSERVATION SITE RECORDED AN 84 MPH GUST. THE HIGHEST SUSTAINED WIND WAS 34 MPH.
  10. If nothing else, this lends additional credence to the viability of analogs as a (general) forecasting tool. That said, it's comical at this point.
  11. We were in Knoxville yesterday as well! Grabbed brunch at Balter Beerworks and then attended a wedding at The Standard. The car showed 76F in sunshine near Jeff City on 40.
  12. It appears to move south midway through the radar loop. Given its linear nature and odd movement, my assumption is it's a mesoscale boundary of some sort. Those loops are a nice reminder of how sweet a snow shield this would be.
