Greetings everyone. I hope this week’s post finds everyone doing well. The past two weeks have been exceptionally active across the USA in severe weather activity and specifically with several devastating and lethal tornado events. Therefore, I will continue with more severe weather preparedness infographics. We’ll also take a look at the latest US Drought Monitor. In case you missed it last week, we also have an interesting read on the high probability that, for the USA, tornadoes may becoming more intense in regions that already see a high level of tornado activity.
- Here’s a spectacular look at the planet Uranus that you’ve probably not seen before.
- Here’s a fascinating read on research showing a connection between Arctic warming and extreme winter weather events in the Earth’s midlatitudes.
- This new report from the World Meteorological Organization goes into detail on just how warm March 2023 was around the globe.
- In case you missed this important read on tornado activity, here it is again. Are we facing a future of more intense thunderstorms and the tornadoes they produce? The possibility is certainly high. Here’s a very good, concise read on that topic. There’s also a link to a very detailed American Meteorological Society research study that addresses the threat in more detail.
- Here is this week’s update on the USA Drought Monitor. Conditions east of the Mississippi river have improved a great deal. Extreme or exceptional drought conditions continue for much of the central and southern plains states. Substantial improvements have shown up this week in the west, but that could change as we get farther into spring.
SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS AND SAFETY
- As the past few days have shown, spring’s severe weather season is getting off to an active start for 2023. With knowledge being power, here’s some great information to help keep you safe. This is an essential read on severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, and related hazards in an excellent 20 page PDF file from the National Weather Service…”Thunderstorms, Tornadoes, and Lightning. Nature’s Most Violent Storms.” Next, we’ll take a look look were to go in a structure when sheltering during a tornado warning. Knowing where to shelter could save the lives of your loved ones and you. By some accounts, the rest of 2023 could have a very active severe weather and tornado season. Regardless of what transpires, being prepared is imperative.
This important infographic focuses on winter weather and social media. However, it also applies to ANY weather conditions that occur years round regardless of where you live. Remember that your NOAA weather radio, local NWS Office, and the broadcast meteorologists of your choice are always the best choices for all types of weather…from clement to life threatening situations.
That’s a wrap for this post! Thanks to everyone for stopping by. A big ‘Thank You’ to all of you who pay this website a visit and follow Tornado Quest in social media!
