Even if it doesn't produce a tornado, those are some pretty impressive winds south of Greensboro. 

That’s the one I’m looking at. Nasty hook about to hit pleasant garden (south/southeast of greensboro).

Why is there not a NWS radar station closer to Charlotte... Storm definitely has strong mid level rotation 

Blame that on Congress...  Charlotte has been lobbying for a closer NWS radar station for nearly 2 decades now...  It's the largest urbanized region (3M+ residents) in the nation without a NWS radar site within 70 miles of its location.

WGHP reporting roofs off buildings in south High Point.

That cell had a tight couple over High Point before it broadened as it approached areas east of Greensboro. 

 

Edit; looks pretty good again now.
