Looking possibly high end, especially Eastern NC. Talk in the discussion of some supercells before transitioning to a qlcs wind and spin up threat. Glad to see a thread, nobody really talking about it much in here.

The new day one outlook from the SPC maintains the enhanced risk for Eastern North Carolina. The discussion mentions the potential for supercells during the afternoon followed by a squall line later in the evening.

I am trying to find some history of regional Tornado outbreaks (or any tornadoes at all for that matter) in this area on Christmas eve and/or day but I cannot

now there were some decent outbreaks after this chart in 2012 and 2015 but those were over the deep south  or TN valley and not the Carolinas

 

Late December 2012 North American storm complex

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Late_December_2012_North_American_storm_complex

31 confirmed only one in NC a EF1 and that was on the 26th

------------------------

Tornado outbreak of December 23–25, 2015

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tornado_outbreak_of_December_23–25,_2015

2 weak tornadoes in SC but those were on the 23rd and and looks like not connected with the main outbreak back west

DAY 1 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK    
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK  
0649 AM CST THU DEC 24 2020  
  
VALID 241300Z - 251200Z  
  
...THERE IS AN ENHANCED RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS OVER PARTS OF  
THE EASTERN CAROLINAS AND SOUTHEASTERN VIRGINIA...  
  
...THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS OVER PARTS OF THE  
FLORIDA PANHANDLE...AND SURROUNDING THE "ENHANCED" AREA...  
   
..SUMMARY  
  
THE MAIN THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE ACROSS PORTIONS OF  
THE CAROLINAS AND MID-ATLANTIC REGION THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING,  
WITH TORNADOES AND DAMAGING GUSTS POSSIBLE.  
   
..SYNOPSIS  
  
IN MID/UPPER LEVELS, BROADLY CYCLONIC FLOW WILL SHIFT EASTWARD FROM  
THE CENTRAL TO EASTERN CONUS THROUGH THE PERIOD, IN STEP WITH A  
HIGH-AMPLITUDE SYNOPTIC TROUGH.  AS ONE ASSOCIATED SHORTWAVE EJECT  
NORTHEASTWARD ACROSS THE UPPER GREAT LAKES, AN UPSTREAM PERTURBATION  
-- NOW EVIDENT IN MOISTURE-CHANNEL IMAGERY OVER THE MB/ON BORDER --  
WILL DIG SOUTHEASTWARD.  ANOTHER PERTURBATION INITIALLY OVER CENTRAL  
TX WILL PIVOT EASTWARD TO THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS.  AS THIS  
OCCURS, A CLOSED 500-MB CYCLONE SHOULD DEVELOP OVER THE LOWER OH  
VALLEY REGION DURING THE 00-06Z TIME FRAME, ITS CENTER MOVING  
EASTWARD PAST SDF BEFORE 12Z TOMORROW.   
  
AT THE SURFACE, THE PRIMARY, OCCLUDED SYNOPTIC LOW OVER THE EASTERN  
LAKE SUPERIOR REGION WILL FILL AND EJECT NORTHEASTWARD ACROSS  
NORTHERN ON.  THE ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT -- INITIALLY DRAWN ACROSS  
PARTS OF OH, EASTERN KY/TN, AL, TO NEAR THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER MOUTH,  
WILL MOVE EASTWARD ACROSS THE SOUTHERN/CENTRAL APPALACHIANS THROUGH  
THIS EVENING.  AS THE MID/UPPER CYCLONE CLOSES TO THE WEST, A WEAK,  
CLOSED AREA OF LOW PRESSURE OVER THE EASTERN AL/NORTHWESTERN GA  
REGION SHOULD MOVE UP THE FRONT TO THE EASTERN WV/SOUTHWESTERN PA  
CORRIDOR BY 00Z, BECOMING THE PRIMARY LOW OVER NY TONIGHT AND  
REACHING SOUTHERN QC BY 12Z.  BY THEN, THE TRAILING COLD FRONT WILL  
REACH EASTERN PA, THEN OFFSHORE FROM THE REMAINDER OF THE CONUS  
ATLANTIC COAST, HAVING CROSSED SOUTH FL AROUND 06Z.   
   
..EASTERN/CENTRAL CAROLINAS AND VICINITY  
  
WIDELY SCATTERED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO CROSS  
THIS REGION TODAY INTO THIS EVENING IN TWO PRIMARY REGIMES:  
1.  AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT, MOVING NORTHWARD TO NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD  
FROM A FAVORABLY MOISTENING/DESTABILIZING MARINE BOUNDARY-LAYER  
REGION OVER THE ATLANTIC.  THIS CONVECTION WILL CROSS LESSER BUT  
STILL SUFFICIENT/SURFACE-BASED BUOYANCY ACROSS THE EASTERN  
CAROLINAS, AS THE WARM SECTOR MODIFIES AND BECOMES MORE UNSTABLE,  
AMIDST STRENGTHENING DEEP SHEAR.  WARM-SECTOR DEW POINTS IN THE 60S  
WILL OFFSET MODEST MIDLEVEL LAPSE RATES ENOUGH TO CONTRIBUTE TO  
MLCAPE GENERALLY IN THE 500-1000 J/KG RANGE FROM EASTERN NC ACROSS  
THE SOUTHERN SOUNDS/OUTER BANKS OF NC, LOCALLY HIGHER NEAR THE  
SOUTHERN NC COASTLINE.  DISCRETE SUPERCELLS ARE POSSIBLE, OFFERING  
TORNADOES AND ISOLATED DAMAGING WIND.  THEN...  
2.  A NEAR-FRONTAL BAND OF THUNDERSTORMS WILL SWEEP EASTWARD TO  
EAST-NORTHEASTWARD OVER THE REGION, PRESENTING A MORE-DOMINANT WIND  
THREAT, BUT WITH SOME LINE-EMBEDDED/QLCS TORNADO THREAT AS WELL.    
  
HEIGHT FALLS AND TIGHTENING HEIGHT/THERMAL GRADIENTS ALOFT ARE  
EXPECTED TO SPREAD OVER THE REGION NEAR AND JUST AHEAD OF THE FRONT  
THROUGHOUT THE DAY, AS THE SYNOPTIC TROUGH DEEPENS TO THE WEST.  A  
65-75 KT LLJ WILL DEVELOP AND SHIFT ACROSS THIS REGION, LEADING TO  
UNCOMMONLY SIMILAR, 40-50-KT MAGNITUDES OF SHEAR VECTORS IN THE 0-1,  
0-3, AND EFFECTIVE LAYERS. DESPITE THE NEARLY UNIDIRECTIONAL,  
SOUTHERLY LOW/MIDDLE-LEVEL FLOW, EVEN VERY SLIGHT HODOGRAPH  
CURVATURE CONTRIBUTES TO 200-350 J/KG EFFECTIVE SRH IN FORECAST  
SOUNDINGS.    
  
THE AIR MASS WILL BECOME STILL MORE STABLE WITH NORTHWARD EXTENT  
PAST A DIFFUSE WARM FRONT THAT WILL MOVE NORTHWARD OVER THE  
DELMARVA/MID-ATLANTIC THIS EVENING AND TONIGHT.  HOWEVER, AT LEAST A  
MARGINAL WIND AND TORNADO THREAT APPEARS TO BE JUSTIFIED, GIVEN THE  
STRENGTH OF THE AMBIENT DEEP-LAYER FLOW AND AT LEAST WEAK  
INSTABILITY NEAR THE SURFACE.  
   
..FL/GA  
  
SEE THE REMAINDER OF TORNADO WATCH 517, MESOSCALE-DISCUSSION UPDATES  
FOR THAT, AND SEPARATE MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1372 FOR MORE DETAILS ON  
THE SEVERE THREAT WITH ONGOING CONVECTION IN THE NEAR-FRONTAL SQUALL  
LINE AND WARM SECTOR OVER THE FL PANHANDLE REGION.  
    
THE MAIN BELT OF CONVECTION WILL SWEEP EASTWARD ACROSS THE REMAINDER  
OF THE OUTLOOK AREA THROUGH THIS EVENING, PRESENTING A THREAT FOR  
SPORADIC DAMAGING GUSTS AND A TORNADO OR TWO.  MOISTURE AND BUOYANCY  
WILL CONTINUE TO BE GREATEST OVER OPEN GULF WATERS NEAR THE LOOP  
CURRENT, WHERE MARINE THERMAL/MOISTURE FLUXES OPTIMIZE BOUNDARY-  
LAYER THETA-E.  STILL, AT LEAST MARGINALLY FAVORABLE THERMODYNAMIC  
CONDITIONS WILL EXIST IN A NORTHWARD-NARROWING CORRIDOR AHEAD OF THE  
MAIN CONVECTIVE LINE, AS PARTLY MODIFIED PARCELS ADVECT FROM THE  
GULF.  THIS AIR MASS, CHARACTERIZED BY MODEST LAPSE RATES BUT ALSO  
MINIMAL MLCINH, ALSO MAY SUPPORT MATURATION OF CELLS DEVELOPING IN  
THE WARM SECTOR BEFORE THEY CROSS INTO MORE-STABLE AIR.

DAY 1 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK    
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK  
1030 AM CST THU DEC 24 2020  
  
VALID 241630Z - 251200Z  
  
...THERE IS AN ENHANCED RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE  
CAROLINAS AND SOUTHEAST VIRGINIA...  
  
...THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS PARTS OF  
NORTHERN FLORIDA AND FAR SOUTHERN GEORGIA...  
   
..SUMMARY  
  
SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE CAROLINAS  
AND MID-ATLANTIC REGION THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT, WITH TORNADOES  
AND DAMAGING WIND GUSTS POSSIBLE.  
   
..EASTERN/CENTRAL CAROLINAS AND MID-ATLANTIC STATES  
  
MULTI-ROUND SEVERE CONVECTION IS POSSIBLE ACROSS PARTS OF THE REGION  
THIS AFTERNOON INTO TONIGHT, PARTICULARLY FOR THE EASTERN  
CAROLINAS/SOUTHEAST VIRGINIA, WHERE SEMI-DISCRETE WARM SECTOR STORMS  
THIS AFTERNOON/EARLY EVENING COULD BE FOLLOWED BY A WELL-ORGANIZED  
CONVECTIVE LINE LATE THIS EVENING AND EARLY IN THE OVERNIGHT.  
  
MULTI-LAYER CLOUD COVER REMAINS PREVALENT AT MIDDAY ACROSS THE  
REGION WITH AIR MASS MODIFICATION OCCURRING NEAR THE COASTAL  
CAROLINAS WHERE LOW/MIDDLE 60S F SURFACE DEWPOINTS ARE BECOMING MORE  
PREVALENT. NORTH/NORTHEASTWARD-RACING BANDS OF CONVECTION OVER THE  
EASTERN CAROLINAS WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE AFTERNOON WHERE THE  
CONVECTION SHOULD GRADUALLY INTENSIFY AS IT BECOMES ROOTED WITHIN  
THE INCREASINGLY MOIST/UNSTABLE BOUNDARY LAYER, ALTHOUGH THE  
PERSISTENT CLOUD COVER AND THE POSSIBILITY OF A LINGERING WARM LAYER  
ALOFT LEADS TO SOME TEMPORAL UNCERTAINTY. REGARDLESS, EXTREMELY  
STRONG LOW-LEVEL/DEEP-LAYER SHEAR, ACCENTUATED BY 55-60 KT IN THE  
LOWEST 1 KM AGL AND 300+ 0-1 KM SRH, WILL BE SUPPORTIVE OF  
FAST-MOVING SUPERCELLS CAPABLE OF A TORNADO/DAMAGING WIND RISK,  
PARTICULARLY LATE THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY EVENING. GIVEN THE  
MAGNITUDE OF THE VERTICAL SHEAR/SRH, A STRONG TORNADO CANNOT BE  
RULED OUT.  

  
OTHERWISE, AS PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED, AN ADDITIONAL ROUND OF REGIONAL  
SEVERE RISK WILL LIKELY OCCUR THIS EVENING INTO THE OVERNIGHT AS A  
STRONGLY FORCED CONVECTIVE LINE EVOLVES AND SPREADS  
EAST-NORTHEASTWARD ACROSS THE CAROLINAS AND COASTAL  
MID-ATLANTIC/DELMARVA. DAMAGING WINDS ARE THE MOST PROBABLE SEVERE  
HAZARD, ALTHOUGH A QLCS-RELATED TORNADO RISK MAY EXIST AS WELL.  
   
..FLORIDA/GEORGIA  
  
A NORTHEAST/SOUTHWEST-ORIENTED COMPOSITE CONVECTIVE LINE ACROSS  
SOUTHERN GEORGIA/FLORIDA PANHANDLE AT LATE MORNING IMMEDIATELY  
PRECEDES AN EASTWARD-MOVING COLD FRONT. SOME ADDITIONAL  
MOISTENING/DIURNAL DESTABILIZATION WILL OCCUR ACROSS THE FLORIDA  
PENINSULA INTO FAR SOUTHERN GEORGIA AHEAD OF THE FRONT/CONVECTIVE  
LINE, WITH SURFACE-BASED DESTABILIZATION OTHERWISE REMAINING MINIMAL  
FARTHER NORTH INTO CENTRAL/EASTERN GEORGIA. LOW-LEVEL/DEEP-LAYER  
WINDS WILL FURTHER STRENGTHEN ACROSS THE REGION, ALTHOUGH LOW-LEVEL  
WINDS WILL TEND TO SLOWLY VEER WITH WIND PROFILES TRENDING MORE  
UNIDIRECTIONAL OVER TIME. EVEN WITH RELATIVELY MODEST BUOYANCY, THIS  
SCENARIO WILL SUPPORT FURTHER ORGANIZATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF  
UPSCALE-GROWING QUASI-LINEAR CONVECTIVE BANDS THIS AFTERNOON. AN  
ISOLATED DAMAGING WIND/TORNADO RISK WILL EXIST ACROSS THE REGION  
THROUGH THE AFTERNOON, WITH THE OVERALL SEVERE RISK SHIFTING  
EASTWARD/TENDING TO DIMINISH TOWARD AND AFTER SUNSET.

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1873  
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK  
1116 AM CST THU DEC 24 2020  
  
AREAS AFFECTED...NORTHEAST SC AND SOUTHERN NC  
  
CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...TORNADO WATCH LIKELY   
  
VALID 241716Z - 241945Z  
  
PROBABILITY OF WATCH ISSUANCE...80 PERCENT  
  
SUMMARY...WHILE THE NEAR-TERM TORNADO RISK MAY REMAIN MARGINAL, IT  
WILL INCREASE INTO A HIGHER PROBABILITY RISK LATER THIS AFTERNOON.  
WHEN EXACTLY THAT THREAT WILL BECOME SUFFICIENT FOR A TORNADO WATCH  
IS STILL UNCERTAIN, BUT A WATCH WILL LIKELY BE NEEDED AT SOME POINT.  
  
DISCUSSION...LOW-TOPPED CONVECTION FROM ROBESON TO COLUMBUS COUNTY,  
NC HAVE HAD EMBEDDED SUPERCELL STRUCTURES. THESE HAVE BEEN SUPPORTED  
BY RATHER STRONG LOW-LEVEL SHEAR WITH 0-1 KM SRH GREATER THAN 300  
M2/S2. SCANT SURFACE-BASED BUOYANCY (MLCAPE LESS THAN 500 J/KG) IS  
PREVALENT AS TEMPERATURES HAVE WARMED INTO THE UPPER 60S TO LOW 70S  
AMID LOW 60S DEW POINTS. THIS HIGH SHEAR/LOW CAPE ENVIRONMENT WILL  
PROBABLY REMAIN CONDUCIVE TO TRANSIENT SUPERCELL STRUCTURES CAPABLE  
OF PRODUCING A BRIEF TORNADO, INITIALLY ACROSS SOUTHERN NC.   
  
WITH TIME, GREATER LOW-LEVEL MOISTENING IS EXPECTED ACROSS NORTHEAST  
SC SPREADING INTO SOUTHERN NC. MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF CONVECTIVE  
DEVELOPMENT WITHIN CONFLUENCE BANDS ARE ANTICIPATED AND THE RISK FOR  
SUSTAINING SUPERCELLS SHOULD INCREASE TOWARDS MID TO LATE AFTERNOON.  
A FEW TORNADOES APPEAR TO BE THE PRIMARY HAZARD.

going to be a long day

 

Sat/radar showing discrete storms developing over the gulf stream off GA and SC moving NNE towards eastern NC as modeled 

The fact that these mini supercells are starting to develop over the Gulf Stream is disturbing. This along with the rain shield basically stalled out over Metro Charlotte and Columbia should be a warning sign that this system is setting up a volatile atmospheric environment over Eastern and Central North Carolina 

It's 60 degrees now at CLT Airport

The overall trough axis is neutral tilting to negative.

Next couple of hours should blow up.

   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 518
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   220 PM EST Thu Dec 24 2020

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Central and Eastern North Carolina
     Eastern South Carolina
     Coastal Waters

   * Effective this Thursday afternoon and evening from 220 PM until
     1000 PM EST.

   * Primary threats include...
     A few tornadoes likely
     Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible

   SUMMARY...The air mass ahead of an eastward-advancing cold front
   will moisten and modestly destabilize this afternoon. Very strong
   winds through a deep layer will support the possibility of supercell
   storms including a tornado and damaging wind risk. An additional
   round of storms, perhaps as a well-organized line, will also move
   into the region from the west late this evening and potentially pose
   a severe threat.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 70 statute miles
   east and west of a line from 50 miles east northeast of Rocky Mount
   NC to 20 miles south of Myrtle Beach SC. For a complete depiction of
   the watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS
   WOU8).

   PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

   REMEMBER...A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for
   tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch
   area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for
   threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements
   and possible warnings.

   &&

   AVIATION...Tornadoes and a few severe thunderstorms with hail
   surface and aloft to 1 inch. Extreme turbulence and surface wind
   gusts to 60 knots. A few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 400. Mean
   storm motion vector 22045.
