It's lightning up a storm right now with light winds with no rain. It's likely the rainfree base overhead

The couplet missed me by a 1/2 mile. Was eerily quiet then extremely windy and heavy rain afterwards.

I was about to say you should have gotten a pretty good look at it.

It was creepy and ominous right when it passed over. The skies was bright blue with lightning and the rain started going sideways immediately after the eeriest portion.

quite a few lowerings when the first cell went through. Third one is riding a boundary, probably the most impressive of the 3.

Yes. I have had a friend confirm that the Botany Woods subdivision in Greenville County took a possible hit. Lots of downed trees and impassable roads. This area is about five minutes away from the Haywood Rd/I-385 interchange.

These training supercells are wearing me out. I'm about to go lookout for the third supercell and if it's on the ground.

So far, this is the only known radar confirmed tornado in the area.  This had a TDS on it, and was just before the warning was issued.  It appeared to form

in the bookend portion of the outflow tail, along the back of the hook echo.  This is the 9:09 PM GSP scan near Wade Hampton, just west of the radar: couplet5.png.bec9c3b6b76696ba62dfb7c58c347051.png

Humidity has ticked up considerably through the evening. My dew point was 61° at 8 PM, has since gone up to 68°. That is feeding these storms nocturnally.

Was not expecting multiple tornado warnings in Charlotte this evening, not bad for a slight risk

This was perhaps the best rotational velocity near Charlotte 10:30PM EDT (02:30z)

Apparently there was a funnel cloud produced by this tight couplet.

So frustrating that this couldn't have been a daytime event and closer up this way. I am still looking for another solid chase day or two before summer junk season.

...Summary...
An EF2 tornado touched down just east of the Montebello
subdivision in central Greenville County. Initial damage
consisted mainly of large tree limbs broken, but the tornado
intensified and uprooted trees and snapped numerous tree trunks
as it approached and ran along Pleasantburg Dr. The tornado
reached its peak intensity of 115 mph and width of close to
400 yards for the first time after crossing Rutherford Rd, where
it lifted the roof off a motel in the Forest Hills area, snapped
numerous hardwood tree trunks, and threw the roofing material a
good distance, destroying numerous cars. The tornado continued to
snap and uproot trees as it moved parallel to Brushy Creek and
crossed Wade Hampton Blvd, where it lifted much of the roof off a
restaurant and damaged the SAVMOR building. The tornado then
continued moving eastward and winds reached peak intensity of
115 mph again as it crossed Edwards Rd, where it snapped and
uprooted multiple hardwood trees. In addition, the tornado
debarked many of these trees. The tornado kept going towards
Botany Rd, where it damaged a church building and snapped more
trees. The tornado then crossed E. North St. where it weakened,
snapping numerous tree limbs before lifting just before reaching
Hudson Rd.
