Haha A+ for effort. Maybe it's a bit Midwest of me here, but growing up in Ohio we regularly saw severe storms. But a derecho was always a whole different ball game and think they need something to differentiate between your usual severe storm, and the ones where you legit need get in a building. I'll say this, 65 mph is pretty wild stuff but anyone who's seen 90+ can attest that is a hell of an experience.

I agree. Been there and done that.

Surprised no one is talking about the tornado outbreak going on. Multiple confirmed tornadoes including two PDS warnings, one of which is ongoing west of Columbia 

GSP def has been busy today with the tornado warnings. Its crazy how many in the mtns. From Banner Elk southward. Pretty impressive while I enjoy my .03" lol

I've been too busy figuring out if I need to leave  :lol:   The tornado in Mauldin was a couple of miles away and the one in Fountain Inn was less than 1/4 mile from me. Fun times  :P

In case one gets you make sure you remember all you have to do is click your heels together three times and say, “there’s no place like AmWx”.  You’ll be back home in a jiffy.

Yesterday was the first borderline severe storm conditions I’ve witnessed imby in at least a year. We weren’t even under a warning but on radar a cell seemed to pop up over my house as part of the line and intensified with a lot of lightning. Probably resulted in localized severe conditions. Lots of leaves, branches down around my neighborhood this morning and part of it lost electricity last night for a few hours. Also some incredibly close lightning strikes. I’m sure I saw some gusts over 40 and there likely were some higher ones around given some of the tree and branch damage on the eastern part of my neighborhood to millbrook rd. Anyways, it was a great storm for the weather geeks in my area and best storm of the year for sure

12Z Monday GFS and NAM guidance for Thursday 11/11 hint at a lifting boundary in South Georgia. Looks south of Atlanta so I have to post here vs my home Tennessee Valley subforum region.

Juuust enough CAPE (all that's needed in the South) accompanies adequate speed and directional shear. LLJ mainly well north is the limiting factor. However any mesoscale wave could keep it going in Georgia. 

ECMWF has not started, but its overnight runs support the scenario. If the LLJ hangs in, South Georgia could have strong to severe thunderstorms on Thursday.
