Late frost or hot summer? Birmingham NWS crunches some numbers. My summer forecast will be out by the end of May.
Does the warm winter mean a hot summer? Does this warm start to March mean we just get hotter from here the rest of spring? These are the questions I am being asked everywhere I go.
Doppler radar only fails to see 15% of tornadoes. But the false alarm rate is still around 70% because Doppler often cannot tell us which rotation will touchdown and which will not. Understanding how complex severe storms actually are and how this impacts the warnings can help keep you safe even if you've had warnings in the past where nothing happened to you.
Perhaps the worst March tornado outbreak in the U.S. on record. It was in my blog back on Feb 6th that I discussed the concerns for another active start to tornado season in the U.S. given the La Nina pattern.
