Severe Weather On The Rise

August 20, 2014, 5:28 PM by Grant Smith

Severe Weather On The Rise

As temperatures begin to drop this time of year, our chances of severe weather begin to rise.

June is typically active, and then the activity usually calms down in July, because the weather pattern is too hot and too dry to allow severe weather to happen.

This graph of tornado activity shows the spike in activity in June, and decline in July. Then a slight bump in activity in August and downhill after that.

So severe weather in August in climatologically valid but the good news is, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Once we get past this second round of severe weather, we can start to make the switch and start preparing for snow storms. But this is still a few week away.
