Yeah, round one here is just a few rumbles of thunder and nice blob of mid/heavy rain! Let’s get this out of here, get some sun by noon, then lookout this afternoon!
The morning storms that were supposed to follow didn't develop since the line is going strong south. Clearing out here and I can tell its going to be fuel to the storms around the mid afternoon at this rate.

Well...interesting morning to say the least... Lost internet, and cell data (but not power..lol) I have to say I cannot ever remember seeing an "at dawn" system come through here in July EVER... no hail here but peak gust of 68.. and 1.29" in 20 mins... and almost continuous GC .. with many nearby strikes...

Another bust here and I was dead smack in the moderate warning with a 10% chance of tornadoes yesterday. I’m not complaining by any means as I don’t want any severe weather. The last few years though no matter how good the setup some how something stops the big severe storms from happening over my area.

That MCS last night really raked over a lot of the atmosphere last night! I’m down to a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms, no mention of severe anymore! But full sun now, so wait and see and radar watch

Yeah, I wonder if it is even going to develop anything else today or be further delayed. Seems like it wiped more to the west than expected causing the flow to be disrupted that would have generated showers.

Sure looks like S GA is in the cross-hairs this afternoon ...

Quick question... How accurate is Radarscope when it pops up a TVS icon in the middle of a storm? I dozed off last night and I think it was about 3:30am I woke up to crazy lightning and my power going out. When I looked at Radarscope a storm near Collegedale, TN moving Southeast showed TVS on several scans.

SPC's Day 1, with Slight expanded... Think they are covering bases or really concerned... With how it "feels" outside now here, I 'm trending towards concern for 5pm to 1 am local

CAPE is building in AL and areas that got hit this morning. Up to around 4500 at one spot in the northern part now. If storms are going to develop they will probably need until this evening to get started.

SUMMARY...Strong mid/high-level northwesterly winds by mid/late-July
standards will continue to overspread a moist and moderate to
strongly unstable air mass across the region, including some areas
that were impacted by early-day storms. This will include the
potential for some supercells capable of large hail and damaging
winds with storms expected to generally spread southeastward through
the evening.

The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 75
statute miles north and south of a line from 40 miles west northwest
of Auburn AL to 35 miles east southeast of Spartanburg SC. For a
complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU0).

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

REMEMBER...A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are
favorable for severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area.
Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening
weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible
warnings. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce
tornadoes.
