Very Little Severe Weather

Bill's Blog

Spring in the U.S. is the time severe weather season really gets cranked up.  However, we’ve had very little severe weather over the past week.  Above is the Severe Weather Outlook Map from the Storm Prediction Center for this PM/night (4/1/19).  No severe thunderstorms are forecast.  General non-severe thundershowers are forecast for parts of the Southeast U.S. and in parts of California and W. Nevada. 

There was just one tornado in the entire U.S. from 3/25 to today (4/1).  You might have see this video of empty trailers getting tossed around near Falcon CO.   The tornado did over half a million dollars in damage to the trailers here.  A nearby house was also damaged.

This is the severe weather statement from the National Weather Service.  The tornado was rated EF0 with winds of 85 mph. 

The U.S. in total had 47 reports of wind damage and 102 reports of severe criteria hail (1″ in diameter or greater) during the past week. 

No severe weather is expected in Michigan thru 4/7.  We had only one day in March when we saw lightning or heard thunder in G.R.
