Cell south of Comer, GA looks like it could get a tor warning if that circulation keeps up. Just a lot of rotation today generally.

What is up with this severe outbreak over the past two days I don't know if I was just under a rock or something but this seemed to overperform big time.

The cell just south of due west is rain wrapped, but a friend said that she heard it as it passed close by. I haven’t heard any reports of damage from it though.

It wasn't just you.  Thread in central/western forum yesterday about MS very low user count as it was ongoing

keep an eye on Dallas metro today for another sneaky event

 

I actually hate high hyped day threads..too many busts calls at 1pm

The debris signature is approaching 2 miles in size, hopefully it's only lofting trees.

Looks like they’re finally loosening up. They both traveled a solid 20-30 miles before weakening though. Curious to see the damage reports. There’s not much for structures in their paths. Mainly just timberland and national forest.

It’s rural, but there are a lot of communities getting pelted just as schools are letting out.

Unfortunately,  there’s also lots of sporadic single wide trailers in those paths, especially around Calhoun falls. Hopefully everyone made out ok.

CAPE has came in much higher than originally anticipated. Heck at my house it's currently 90 with a dew of 68. Helicity is alright, but a fairly low LCL, decent shear and tons of energy are letting these things breathe and put down some damn good storms.
