I'm posting this on behalf of Bill Coyle. Bill sent me his raw video from just south of Edenton, North Carolina on Sunday, and I cranked up the contrast of this heavily rain-wrapped feature in Premeire. Above is a screen grab. Here is the clip, a full-screen MPEG, 13.5MB:
Motion near the surface doesn't look violent, but is definately fast and suspicious. Differential motion is also visible at cloud base. What's your verdict? I'm leaning toward tornado, but I'm curious as to others' thoughts. Here are Threat Net grabs at the approximate time of this feature. The view is from Highway 64, the road just south of the meso indicators.
