Hello to one and all. I’m glad you stopped by. May has arrived and that typically brings the peak of the annual severe weather events across the USA. All severe hazards will be possible on a few days as a complex forecast scenario evolves. 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. Several other important topics to cover, so let’s get started.

With knowledge being power and the most important factor in staying safe, here’s some great information you’ll find helpful.
