Weekend Severe Weather - Tornado Stats

Another active weekend of severe weather in the south.  Not as bad as the weekend before but powerful nonetheless.

Tornado deaths are not as high as in years past yet heavily concentrated in the south.

Here is a snapshot of the accumulation of tornado watches per county.  The darker the red, the higher the concentration of tornado watches in that area.  Notice northern Ohio was spared of any tornado watches last season.

Now that El Nino is weakening and summer warmth and higher dewpoints become more widespread, expect severe/tornadic weather to be more common in the months ahead.
