Hello to one and all. I’m glad you stopped by. Up until a few days ago, it’s been a very active severe weather season across the USA. Even though we may be in a bit of respite, indications are that all severe hazards will continue for many weeks. Therefore, I will continue this week with more severe weather preparedness infographics for you which included tornado safety. As usual, we’ll take a look at the latest US Drought Monitor. Let’s get started.
- The Hubble space telescope has now been in operation for thirty-three years. Here’s a look back at some of its amazing images.
- In recent days, Spain has been in the grips of an April heatwave with temperatures often exceeding 100F. Let’s hope this isn’t an omen for the rest of the Northern Hemisphere.
- The connection between wildfires and snow pack in the western USA may not seem clear. Here’s an excellent read explaining the significant connection.
- Is the traditional definition of Tornado Alley now irrelevant? As many recent trends have shown, the epicenter of tornado activity for the contiguous USA has shifted.
- Here is the latest 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. Some areas of the Oklahoma and Texas panhandle region into Kansas have gone several months without any beneficial rainfall.
SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS AND SAFETY
- The severe weather season in 2023 has been one of the most active in recent years and a record has already been set in the USA for tornado activity. With knowledge being power and the most important factor in staying safe, here’s some great information you’ll find helpful. 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.
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!
