This is going to go directly into Mayfield unless something drastic happens. Time is running out very quickly and unfortunately even if it were to occlude, it'll still nail Mayfield.

It's been nailing things for a long time now. This is definitely turning out to be a very bad night based on the reports and photos coming in so far. Far and away capped by this particular cell, which has gone through several towns and left what seems to be chaos in its wake. Remains to be seen if this is a contiguous single long tracker, or 2-3 shorter, still long trackers. A 3 body scatter off debris is pretty telling. When you get a cell that stays discrete like this one has in an environment like this one is in, you get the type of tornado that gets a wikipedia article dedicated to it. It's very rare. There are plenty of "good ingredients" days, but often on such days you end up with a messy storm mode. Everything and anything that goes up turns into a cell, every cell develops some kind of spin, you get upscale growth and collisions and the integrity of the meso gets disrupted. This is what happens when you take the theoretical "lone" supercell and put it into a dynamically intense environment. Until this thing runs into another cell, or a worse environment, this is going to continue. But, honestly, what just happened to Mayfield might end up being the worst. I'm not entirely sure what to even say at this point.
