The Reports Keep Coming…

Welcome to spring time in The United States, Yes, it’s normal to see tornadoes in April, but did anyone ever imagine that we would see this many? Preliminary reports so far put us at nearly 560 tornado reports for the month. Impressive? You better believe it! Especially since our 3 year average is only 185. And, we’re not even done yet with the month! It is important to note that many of these reports may indeed be the same tornado reported twice. So, even if we took just 70% of these tornado reports, we would still be approaching 400 reports.

Are we shocked by these numbers? In one way yes, but in other ways not really since La Nina can typically generate higher than normal tornado reports. Just imagine what May could look like if we kept the pattern this active. May is usually the most active tornado month of the entire year! Could we see 600 tornado reports next month? If April is trying to teach us anything, then I would say there is a good possibility.
