April 12 Severe Event

Recommended Posts

Think we’ll need to keep an eye on the storms moving through Carrollton now, those look like they’ll be the ones headed for Atlanta.

The SPC was right to NOT upgrade this outbreak to a high risk. This was a significant severe weather outbreak, but moderate risk much better summarizes what did & didn't happen.

The 1st PDS TW was right but the 2nd didn't really reach the criteria. We had an EF-4/5, and we don't yet know the number of EF-2/3s. And of course we had some EF-0/1s.  I guess we will find out more over the next 2-3 days.

I know it's not 100% over. I just want to qualify what I wrote.

Something may be on the ground north of whitesburg. I can’t even make out a velocity couplet, but there’s a blue/green blob moving ene on cc. Atlanta may need to watch this.

61 dBZ debris ball and I had +73/-134 mph a couple of scans ago, that is a very strong tornado.

Hopefully it weakens before it gets to Macon. Yikes. If not, hopefully it stays to the north.

It would have to take the mother of all right turns to get to Macon, which isn't going to happen. It will stay well north of Macon.

Looks like it's weakening anyway.
