Correct and a lot of modeling had a pretty stout line crossing the mountains right around now. We don’t have that on current radar. Classic NC screw job in the making.

What radar are you looking at? It looks to me like a pretty decent line is coming through the foothills now and coming into the Piedmont and down into the upstate. Let’s see what it does. It’s got plenty of unstable air out ahead of it.

It does look better than it did a while ago but still not as impressive as I would of thought. Especially, given the CAPE. But yes, you’re correct. Let’s see what this thing does.

That south alabama and mississippi area. Is very concerning for a derecho. Not looking good for that area. Derecho composite is pretty high as well

After the rain dissipates, the hardest hit areas will get a break until Sunday. Then it looks like rain is on the menu for the rest of the foreseeable future. Flooding will likely be the story of the day and month.

Highest tornado potential will likely be anything that roots itself near the boundary especially to the south where untapped instability and sunshine are. Screenshot_20210504-150553.png
