Buresh Blog: May averages... April by the numbers... Peak of the tornado season

May averages at JIA:

April ended up a little warmer than average & drier than average after a long stretch - going back to Nov. - of above average rainfall (only Feb. was the other month since Nov. with below avg. rainfall).

A classic spring set-up in late April led to several days of severe storms & tornadoes. It’s not at all unusual to see an increase in tornadoes in April as we head to the peak of the tornado season in the Plains & Midwest through May into the first half or so of June. But the last week of April was particularly active.
