    Anyone know what this is depicting off the SE Coast right now? Outflows from a supercell?

    NWS GSP‏Verified account @NWSGSP 14m14 minutes ago Latest update from @NWSSPC shows a significant increase in severe t-storm risk this afternoon. An Enhanced Risk means numerous storms producing winds in excess of 60mph are now possible across all of Upstate SC, northeast GA, and parts of NC. Please stay aware! #GAwx #NCwx #SCwx

    < Previous MD Mesoscale Discussion 1186 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0902 PM CDT Fri Jun 21 2019 Areas affected...eastern TN into western NC...SC...northern GA...central AL and northeast MS Concerning...Severe potential...Watch likely Valid 220202Z - 220400Z Probability of Watch Issuance...80 percent SUMMARY...Damaging wind potential will likely persist into the overnight hours and a downstream severe thunderstorm watch is likely to the south/southeast of WW 419. DISCUSSION...A bow echo continues to shift east/southeast across KY/TN this evening. Western portions of this line continue to weaken as outflow surges southward ahead of the line into northern MS. It remains unclear how far south and east the bow echo will continue, however, a strong cold pool remains in the wake of the line and ample MLCAPE remains southeast of the line from middle/eastern TN into AL/GA before decreasing toward the western Carolinas. The latest VWP from OHX does indicate some weakening of the rear-inflow jet compared to 1-2 hours ago, but still showing 50-60 kt between 1-3 km ARL. The most recent measured gusts have generally been between 40-50 kt with many reports of trees down and other damage. Given a favorable downstream environment where strong instability and a very moist boundary layer persists beneath steep midlevel lapse rates and modestly increasing deep layer shear overnight, some threat for damaging wind is expected to extend into parts of northern/central AL into northern GA and perhaps the western Carolinas and a watch likely will be needed for at least some portions of the MCD area in the next 1-2 hours.

    That's quite a gust!!! ...NWS DAMAGE SURVEY FOR THE NASH COUNTY THUNDERSTORM WIND EVENT... .An NWS survey team has determined that straight-line winds were the primary cause of extensive tree and minor structural damage to the North Carolina Wesleyan College Sports complex on April 20th... Location...2 SSW Battleboro in Nash County, North Carolina Date...June 20th, 2019 Estimated Time...4:20 PM EDT Estimated Maximum Wind Speed...85-95 mph Maximum Path Width...650 yards Path Length...0.4 miles Beginning Lat/Lon...36.01/-77.78 Ending Lat/Lon...36.01/-77.78 * Fatalities...0 * Injuries...0 ...Summary... Strong, straight-line thunderstorm winds from a microburst impacted areas near the intersection of Thomas A Betts Parkway and Bishop Road. Upon impact, 85 to 95 mph winds quickly spread in a fan-like pattern primarily northeast of the original impact point. Damage from the wind gusts ranged from nearly 100 uprooted and snapped pine trees and minor structural damage to the sport complex outbuildings. This includes the total loss of an anchored steel score board, significant damage to a cinder block dugout which included a primary wall collapse, and the uplift, transport, and destruction of a viewing tower near the Football complex. Minor damage to fencing and other temporary structures was also common place, with little to no damage present to nearby sturdy buildings.
