General Severe Weather

Recommended Posts

Instability, shear and helicity seem to be just south of Albany, GA at the present time and hugging the bulk of the line racing through the south.  If forecasts are to be true, may see quite a bit of warm sector action today in southern GA. IMO with the high likelihood of quite a few wind reports with that line, in addition to decent tornado chances ahead of it and embedded within, the SPC should go ENH ASAP

958am - CONSIDERABLE DAMAGE reports in George County, MS. This is a CONFIRMED TORNADO moving into the Wilmer, AL area in western Mobile County.  
Not Good...

From @NWSMobile

There may be the possibility this tornado was on the ground for some time before warning came out, based on radar presentation leading up to the warning.

It looks like a tornado tracked from Baker Hill, AL (south of Eufaula,) to Springvale GA.

Tons of QLCS tornadoes in this line. I'll admit I am shocked how strong these helicity numbers are, but think the lack of instability north of Columbus, GA may be too much of hinderance for this to be very widespread. It is early in the afternoon though

With this severe weather threat moving east, Valdosta/Moody AFB radar is not working at this time.

I don't see us here in Charleston getting too much in the way of severe weather unless that warm front hurries itself on through.  Lots of good ingredients hanging out just offshore that would make this a true severe event.  

I notice the air is rather cold behind this front, only 50 degrees currently in Huntsville. That's some Ohio type of temperature for 3 PM a day from April

Looks like the SPC is banking on a derecho tomorrow.  I could see the storms kicking up off the mountains tomorrow bringing some basic severe weather with that vort hanging around, and then a derecho sweeping through tomorrow night in the Virginias

Just had a nice severe warned storm move thru with heavy rain and pea sized hail. First hail I have seen in many years. Picked up .49" real quick. Also dropped our temp from 75 to 65.

EDIT: 2nd severe warned storm came thru and boy did it get dark but only got some wind and rain out of it. Total from both storms .65"

Slight is gone for NC. As far as a derecho, it would not only have to be a long track swath of damaging winds but also numerous gusts of 75+

Storms look isolated at best per Hi-res modeling. Hoping for widespread rain to pan out Sunday without a severe threat. It is getting dry.

Don't know wind speed but had to be 70+ in Morehead City where I'm at when that line came through. Did something to the roof because we have water pouring in through the ceiling. I was here for Dorian and had not such issues. Didn't blow trash cans over. They're in the neighbor's yard across the street...

Wow, luckily it wasn't that bad here. Probably around 40 mph tops but very intense rain with wind changing directions a few times. Very nice squall line for us, intense but no damage.
