After an evening of intense supercell thunderstorms and numerous tornadoes, it looks like we'll enter a prolonged quiet, docile weather pattern starting today in some areas (isolated to scattered storms this evening) and for all tomorrow. We're not in line for supercell thunderstorms today, so don't worry about tornadoes. Just ordinary widely scattered storms.

If you witnessed the storms last night, you probably don't want another storm for the rest of the year!! Around 5:30 or so, the first storm fired off. This one quickly produced rotation and eventually a possible tornado. A mobile home community was demolished after a suspected tornado blew through, wrapping metal around trees and leaving insulation sprawled out across the surrounding branches. If I'm not mistaken, the same storm tracked north and a tornado caved in the roof at a Food Lion in Spencer, NC. It continued to unleash it's wrath by tossing cars around and even hurling a tractor trailer across a parking lot. That tornado was confirmed by the NWS as an EF3. One of the supercells roared over us here in Kannapolis. We we're right under the famous tornado-producing hook of the storm where a possible tornado was forming. Thankfully, the tornado failed to organize.

Below is short footage of the tornado in Spencer as it tore through a field and blew transformers....

The bulk of the heavy rain occurred east of the mountains. With that being said, high water is not a problem on rivers and streams in the mountains, so fishing will continue to gradually improve throughout the week. If you have the opportunity to get out and wet a line, take it!! It is going to be absolutely spectacular weather wise this week. Highs in the upper 70's in the high country, with low to mid 80's in Piedmont locations. I'm almost positive we'll see large hatches of Quill Gordons and Blue Quills sometime this week. The weather will be conducive for the bugs to really start hatching. Make sure you have Quill Gordons and Blue Quills in your box.
