Headed Into The Record Books?

Spring time in Oklahoma usually means quite a few tornadoes. Or, does it? So far this year, according to The Storm Prediction Center, Oklahoma has actually been “tornadoless”. (Though, this is debatable because there has been video circulating of a possible tornado in Osage County at the end of February). Anyways, check out the graphic below:

If we go off of the SPC reports, then this would be the 3rd latest we have ever gone without a tornado in the state. With April 18th and April 26th being the latest we have gone before seeing a tornado. (Yes, there have been a few years when we never saw a tornado). But, just because we had a late start to the season, doesn’t mean we won’t see an active year. Of course, the drought this year may keep our tornado count low. Either or, notice how the years that had a late start ended up seeing an average tornado year or even slightly above average. (Average tornado count is about 53).

But, it looks like the tornadoless streak could end tomorrow.

There is a MODERATE RISK for severe storms in Northeast Oklahoma.
