Dewpoint got up to 67 in Huntsville and while the winds were impressive it otherwise wasn't too bad up here. I also recorded the highest wind gust at my house in five years.

I give myself a B+. I underestimated the overall coverage of the wind and I was seriously believing there would be an elevated tornado threat in SE AL. All in good fun. That is the first event I've followed from start to finish in years.

I'll use it as a crutch when I absolutely bomb the next one.

Pretty good lightning, some wind and some rain but I'm still waiting for the main part to come through, its taking its time coming across Gwinnett Co.

I know you didn’t even ask lol, but I Give myself a C+, kinda fell into the HRRRs trap of supercells firing out ahead of the line, even if it did have support, hrrr is very known to do that, overall unidirectional flow nearly to the SFC and flow parallel to system made this more of a wind event

Hey at least you had a good idea that had a little support. I bombed the event last spring bad. I paid for it too with a nice supercell that dropped a tornado a mile from my house. I won't ever forget that day, almost tied with April 27 as far as discrete supercell go. Just produced weak tornadoes thank goodness.

NC gonna be surprised imo. Not often does a line survive the mtns, after dark, in middle of January, and restrengthen.

Many trees coming down across western NC. Brace for impact Wilkesboro, Hickory, Statesville and Winston-Salem. Huge wind.

This is my house in the background with a funnel cloud. This is near Union Grove about a mile or so from Brindlee Mtn Primary that has severe damage. Several friends in North Arab have damage too. Screenshot_20200111-143749_Facebook.jpg
