Tornado Count to Date

Who’s keeping track at home? The tornado count to date looks like this. It’s normal to see states well east of here have higher tornado counts than us. Rankings 5, 6, and 7 were Louisana, Nebraska and Tennessee. Dixie Alley, especially during a La Nina pattern tends to be a bit more active.

What will be interesting to see is how much this map changes in the next 5 weeks with May being notorious for changing this graphic around. May is no doubt the peak of the severe weather season in The United States, but looking at the models for the next few days, the pattern almost looks a little more “June-like” in whick the track moves well up to the north.

And if you’re wondering how this map compares to this time last year, remember Alabama was just coming off their huge tornado outbreak. Remember these are just tornado reports and not confirmed tornadoes. Some have been reported twice.

  1. if the weather is out side of our viewing area then shut up about the weather. no one is listening to you expound on the weather. most people only want to know whether they are directly effected in our viewing area. it they are more than 75 miles away from okc they can’t hear you talking as you are only talking to air with no one listening. it is amazing that you think someone is listening to you outside our area more than 50 to 75 miles.

    • Hey Jon, thanks for your remarks. Actually, the KOCO viewing area goes all the way north to the Oklahoma/Kansas line and NW past Woodward. The people in Grant County were very thankful that we were on, saving their life, since they were being directly impacted in our viewing area. Please remember there are people who lives outside of a 75 mile radius of OKC. Thanks.
