In Panama City Beach, we are under a Rip Current Statement, High Surf Advisory, Flash Flood Watch, Wind Advisory and Tornado Watch. There are already power outages from the wind, which doesn't take much around here.

For only the third ever time living in Georgia (lived here since 2006), we had to go through the tornado plan. As I walked back from the designated tornado shelter, the sun came out.

Unfortunately my personal weather station is having problems, so I do not know how much rain I’ve gotten in this event. I know it’s a lot, though.

Based on a nearby station, and I don’t know how accurate it is, we’ve received over 4.75” since yesterday morning.

Given trends and reports from the Carolinas I almost wonder if today is going to be the bigger of the two days in the way of damage... still an hour from noon even in the Eastern time zone

I've learned one thing over the past few years, the SPC's risk areas are pretty much spot on all of the time. The fact that we had a higher risk for severe weather here than Atlanta or even Birmingham got my attention.

Things are ramping up, seeing more rotation on these storms especially in NC.

That storm ENE of Charlotte ramped up in a hurry. Very impressive rotation on it now..

Edit: I hate that the airport radars don't have CC products, TCLT is close enough to that storm to see the strong rotation, but can't verify a tornado like we could with other radars.

There’s almost a continuous wall of flash flood warnings from the Alabama state line to the Virginia state line. Flooding might end up being the big story of this event.

I also think it's not a good look for BMX to have dropped the entire CWA tornado watch to then have a couple tornadoes...one fatal. This all being despite guidance that continued to show an overnight threat.
