February 6 Severe Threat

Recommended Posts

That’s what I was thinking. It may be the worst severe weather day for Charlotte since one of those mid 80s outbreaks. I am talking about Charlotte specifically. I could care less about outbreaks anywhere else in the state in this instance. 

Yeah easily the worst I can remember for the Charlotte metro area in a long while....if it don't calm down soon it will end up being a big day for the entire state.....we are getting a few breaks in the clouds down here in the east.

Today has produced more tornadoes based on OTG calls by the NWS and now some ground confirmation reports coming out than some of our more well-advertised spring systems of late. And it's only a little past noon.

I know mby has had close to 4” of rain so far and if any of those winds mix down to the surface, it won’t be pretty :yikes: 

New warning to the south of me. Hoping its shifted enough that I'm out of the highest severe threat..but not the rain. I  only had 1.6 inches when I posted that...now have 3.35.  The amount of water in the pasture here is as high as ive ever seen it...glad I'm not in a low spot. 

Only a few modest gusts so far wind wise

Can you remember a day like this, ever?  It might be the worst severe weather day I can remember since the late 80s for Charlotte.

I’ve lived here for around 13 years now. No, never seen a day like this here.

now, when I lived in Mississippi, days like this were literally a dime a dozen.

Yeah, my wife who is from NW Alabama, says this reminds her very much of home. She wasnt sure why the schools were in session today.

Almost had water in my basement a couple hours ago. Never had my creek jump its bank before but it backed up and flooded the whole yard. Only a foot or so from coming in. CRAZY stuff! Thankfully it's been very light rain since. Over 5.7 so far.

I'm originally from Birmingham and this weather is quite common for Central Alabama

Thankful that the severe threat stayed south of my area , Temps still in the 40s here , it's a rough day in North Carolina though..

We have been right on the edge of the front all day.  We were about 60 degrees in Winston until 4am or so, then dropped to mid 40's in less than 2 hours.  Climbed just slightly up to around 49-50 degrees just in the last hour.  Amazing how the most severe cells came right up just to our south, less than 10 miles, then pushed east.  Forsyth County was actually tornado warned earlier but the radar indicated rotation was JUST south in Davie County.  Closest lighting strike though was less than 2 miles, lots of thunder today.  Dangerous day but extremely interesting to learn from as a novice.

Lost connection to my home camera in North Hills. Assuming power's out. In Garner we missed most of the wind but it's pouring.

I am off of exit 289 and had about 2-3 min of heavy rain and hail and then completely stopped. Lost power momentarily and went back to a mist. Very weird how I had hardly anything with how impressive that line looked

Really surprised how fast this sped up..   Last night the report was that it would arrive close to midnight...  this morning it would arrive between 4-7...  It actually arrived around 1-2PM.

Forward progression seems to be temporarily halted at the Wake/JoCo line. Still dry here in Clayton.

Yep- training here in Garner. Absolutely dumping

Friend is reporting numerous trees down in his neighborhood off Falls of the Neuse near Ravenscroft. Fiance says power has come back on in our neighborhood but a lot of branches down and trashcans blown over. Sounds like quite the windstorm with the northern part of that bend as it pushed through

I can’t ever remember them cancelling school in my day, but there were days where we basically spent the entire day in the hall. I remember once in 8th grade or so, they sent us to the halls and I got a glimpse out of door, and evil cloud looked to be about 200 ft off the ground, rolling over the football field. Not a twister, but was trying mightily to become one.

I did have my mom pick me up from elementary school once in the middle of the day when we lived in Tupelo, cause it was warning after warning. 
Also in Tupelo spent many nights in the most primitive leaky, dark, spider infested storm shelter, until the the neighbors across the street built a nice, fancy one under ground.
