General Severe Weather

Recommended Posts

Just got the power back on after getting blasted. Number of trees down or damaged around the area after easily 50 to 60 mph winds and white out conditions. Was a bit nerve racking for a while. Not surprisingly ffc didnt issue a warning when it damn well should have...meanwhile gsp was on the ball as usual and smartly issued a warning for elbert county.  

Picked up another inch of rain.

Here is a map of the storm reports, up to 647pm eastern. There is one report of 3 waterspouts. Obviously this is a notable severe weather day for this area.

When that storm came through Kernersville earlier today the wind was strong enough to blow the rain bands out ahead of the storm.  It was raining sideways with the sun still out for about a minute.  Havent seen that before.

I got lucky and caught a CG as I took the shots to make this pano. This was outside of Siler City on 6/20:

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.

Looks like we'll get some fairly potent MCS action over the next 24 hours.The HRRR has the first arriving overnight with two more crossing Saturday afternoon.

Damaging winds the big issue most likely,they are really flying moving SE.

   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.

Next one is on its way, I’ve just missed the bad leading edge last night and this morning where I am working in Indiana.  Same areas taking a beating 12 hours apart and they didn’t need any more heavy rain up here with the local flooding.

We got nailed by that line around 4am. Trees and power lines downed across the midlands of SC. Second severe thunderstorm event in less than 48 hours with more in the forecast. Pretty unusual for late June down here

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 #SCwxD9rfoD7U0AAWSII.jpg

Enhanced??? We got slammed last night with only a slight probability.

Even though the worst of the storms just missed here, still got hit pretty hard with 40 mph gusts and about 0.35 of rain in a few minutes time. Wasn't as strong as the other day but happening at night makes it seem worse.   Considering the daytime heating being added to the mix as opposed to getting hit at 2 in the morning, would expect it could get quite breezy with some of these. I always worry about storms coming in from the north or northwest here since there is a lot of open space in that direction which allows the wind to get quite high.

Just got slammed for the 3rd time in 48 hours. These MCS storms are legit. Winds were pretty insane. Torrential rains and some really nasty lightning.

3k nam drops a line down over the coastal plains tomorrow and even though severe isnt likely anytime we have this type of heat anything can happen.

Cool tornado simulator that shows the wind patterns on the edge of the tornado. The individual sand grains really highlights the wind flow.

We were put in a marginal risk earlier today.

Wow, though - that's quite a report you have in the observation thread!
