Sitting right on top of the boundary here in TR and waiting on the third. The first cell gave us the most action so far; lots of rotation and very visible updrafts. Pea sized hail too.

Helicity is really high up in the Charlotte metro area but these storms have outran their instability. Far too stable of an atmosphere for them to run past Charlotte and I expect weakening soon

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0477  
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK  
0758 PM CDT SAT APR 25 2020  
  
AREAS AFFECTED...NORTHWESTERN SOUTH CAROLINA INTO SOUTH-CENTRAL  
NORTH CAROLINA  
  
CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 148...  
  
VALID 260058Z - 260230Z  
  
THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 148 CONTINUES.  
  
SUMMARY...LOCAL/BRIEF TORNADO RISK MAY SPREAD OUT OF WW 148 INTO  
SOUTH-CENTRAL NORTH CAROLINA.  
  
DISCUSSION...WHILE SEVERE RISK HAS DIMINISHED ACROSS MOST OF TORNADO  
WATCH 148, A SMALL CORRIDOR EXISTS OVER NORTHWESTERN SOUTH CAROLINA  
NEAR/TO THE COOL SIDE OF THE WEDGE FRONT WHERE A FEW SUPERCELL  
STORMS ARE ONGOING.  WHILE LIKELY TO BE SLIGHTLY ELEVATED JUST TO  
THE COOL SIDE OF THE FRONT, THE STORMS CONTINUE TO EXHIBIT WEAK  
LOW-LEVEL ROTATION.  GIVEN THE PRESENCE OF THE LOW-LEVEL BOUNDARY  
LYING WEST-TO-EAST ACROSS THIS AREA, A BRIEF TORNADO SPIN-UP REMAINS  
A POSSIBILITY OVER THE NEXT HOUR OR SO.  
  
WHILE THIS SLIGHTLY-MORE-FAVORABLE ZONE OF MINIMAL CAPE BUT AMPLE  
SHEAR EXTENDS EAST OF THE WATCH INTO SOUTH-CENTRAL NORTH CAROLINA, A  
NEW TORNADO WATCH IS NOT EXPECTED, AS THE ALREADY MARGINAL  
THERMODYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT DIURNALLY WORSENS.

I've been interested in getting photos of red sprites. Does anybody know how low-topped supercells behave regarding lightning and red sprite potential?

Tight rotation just north of Greenville now. Looks like the best of the day. 

yep...noticed how  the gust front moved back more west of the hook as it  got tighter

but these storms have tried before and gusted out again

Just not sure we have the humidity today for this. I mean Charlotte is only 150 miles away as the crow flies and we had hardly a cloud in the sky. Not very ripe conditions for tornadoes

Ok this is really bugging me so I have to ask:

 

why is it being referred to as "GREENVILLE DOWNTOWN" in the warnings as opposed to DOWNTOWN GREENVILLE

is this a local thing?

 

9 MILES EAST OF GREENVILLE DOWNTOWN

That’s a reporting station, KGMU.

I believe that it is a possible tornado on along North Tryon in the University City portion of Charlotte

Tornado warning on #2 now.  Headed for downtown clt.

I'm stunned there aren't more people in here with multiple tornadic storms training through Charlotte. I know people aren't out tonight!

I was stunned when I made this thread earlier. I figured a thread would of already been made. This certainly did live up to expectations

I'm in Charlotte (Steele Creek area) and I'll report back if this 2nd one is producing a tornado

Pretty relieved we haven't heard any damage reports from the lead storm yet because it's been 120+ mph GTG for probably 20 minutes now.
