General Severe Weather

Recommended Posts

This was the storm I encountered on Highway 264 just east of Washington last Thursday. It produced at least quarter sized hail with a few pieces close to golf ball sized.

Does anyone know an official number of tornados for NC this year? I know of the 13 in the Raleigh zone one in Tyrell county for MHX and then Stanley county so that's only 15 that I can verify. I know of a couple of other tornado warned storms in our area and a few more up around mt airy but cant find anything on confimations.

...GA/SC/NC/VA...
   Another convectively aided shortwave trough is noted over eastern
   KY/TN.  This feature will track across the mountains and into
   southern VA and the Carolinas this afternoon.  A very moist and
   moderately unstable air mass is present over this region, with
   sufficient daytime heating to help initiate storms. 12z CAMs are
   consistent in developing multiple lines of storms across this area
   later today.  Sufficient westerly flow aloft and degree of CAPE
   suggest a risk of damaging winds and hail with the activity. 
   Organized and occasionally severe storms are possible as far south
   as eastern GA today.

Line that just went through the Triad was amping up the whole time.  Very heavy rain, maybe some pea size hail and some solid lighting activity.  Radar is loaded.  Wouldnt want to be in central and eastern NC today if all of these cells start going severe.

It weakened quite a bit. Must have hit a pocket of higher instability earlier

2 rounds of storms, 1.60" =/-, and the rainy stuff is still a few days away! We're gonna be :raining::flood:

Also, neglected to post this earlier.  Here is a hailstone from the beginning of the storm on last Friday.  I think this one is a due to several stones melting and refreezing together.

Lucky you. Amazing what difference being one state to the north can do. We are getting close to a month without measurable rain here, and I'm skeptical that this pattern will produce for my area.

Well, we had another severe thunderstorm watch last night, but nothing severe around me. Had heavy rain and some thunder. The biggest severe weather around here this year remains the tornadoes we had in May when we were not under any kind of watch.

Thursday we got a Slight going in Mississippi. That's more Deep South than our Tennessee Valley region so I will opine here. 

Surface low in Louisiana will track through southern/central Mississippi toward the Mississippi/Alabama border by 00Z. This little guy is what ginned up in southeast Texas after the Gulf disturbance came onshore. It should provide good low level shear and backed surface winds. At the same time a mid-latitude upper low sweeps in, with WSW winds aloft. That is key, vs unidirectional. Questionable ingredient is instability. LLJ prog is most robust MS/AL border toward 00Z.

Friday the small surface low ejects off into the Carolinas, but the LLJ is forecast to veer off and/or weaken. Upper to mid-level wind remains WSW but weaker than on Thursday. Different short-wave timing (still 36+ hr out) could change things upstairs. Tis the season to watch those Carolina west-east boundaries, and one is forecast on Friday. In fact the sfc low is forecast to ride it.

We had heavy rain and cloud to ground lightning last night. Picked up .75” when it was all said and done. We’ve gotten about 2” over the last five days.

Louisiana is getting hit with tornadoes now. I guess it's not considered in the SE here, but I've been watching coverage from a station in New Orleans. They have a confirmed tornado with debris showing on radar.

Don't want the severe weather, but would love to see the better rain coverage folks to our SW are currently getting.

You'll eventually get some rain if the models are even half right.
