Memphis NWS a bit slow on the draw today, but I guess stuff's starting to spin as fast as warnings can be issued. Might be one of those blink and you'll miss it spin-ups here and there to go with the potential longer lived tors that could happen with anything semi-discrete.

Gotten extremely windy here in the last hour; the new porch windchimes here in the deep woods on the east side of the house are chiming for the first time that I remember. Also super overcast with that line segment about to cross.

Interesting. NWS weather statement has the wording "At 225 PM CST, doppler radar indicated a severe thunderstorm
producing a tornado was located near Canaan, or 11 miles northwest."

The wording is "producing a tornado". It's most always "capable of" producing a tornado when the storm is only radar indicated. Are they using CC verification or something in the absence of ground truth?

NWS Memphis always does that, even if there is no confirmation. I asked them about it one time and they just say to check the source statement in the warning.

The isolated cells near Greenville look concerning, but looks like the short term hotspot is that Tupelo-Jackson(TN) corridor.

Can someone post some screencaps from GR3 or something for those of us stuck in RadarScope limbo?
Yep give me just a minute. I have to log into TW on my computer with the radar data.
