And don't bank on it being weaker looking, couplets like this last night produced major damage in MS.

I think it's weakened and/or lifted. However, it cycled rapidly between the first unwarned couplet/cc drop and this, so any new cycles will still have it in place over a heavily populated area. I hope it's done; reflectivity is pretty messy around it now but inflow still seems to be feeding into it based on velocity.

   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK

   Areas affected...north central Georgia into northern and central
   South Carolina

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 127...

   Valid 031703Z - 031830Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 127 continues.

   SUMMARY...Threat for isolated tornadoes will persist another couple
   hours over north central Georgia. Severe threat is expected to
   develop eastward into northern and central South Carolina this
   afternoon where another WW will be needed soon.

   DISCUSSION...Storms continue developing along several east-west
   oriented boundaries across north central GA where the environment
   remains favorable for occasional supercells with low-level
   mesocyclones and isolated tornadoes. The atmosphere is destabilizing
   from the southwest across central and north central GA into central
   SC. Low-level hodographs will remain sufficient for supercells with
   isolated tornadoes as the low-level jet continues to shift northeast
   through northern GA and into western and central SC while the
   atmospheres destabilize from the south and west.

Both warnings dropped.

New Tornado Warning for Mecklenburg and Cabarrus counties until 1:45PM.  The southernmost cell just passed over my place and it had a rain-free base with a lowering and wind gust of 50 mph suddenly

Two more tor warnings up in Georgia. One reissued on the earlier cell NE of Athens and one on the previously severe warned storm south of Monticello. Active wx day and the Texas stuff hasn’t popped yet (another subforum I know).
