Default Another advantage of our nice, cool spring...

Very few tornadoes! I read an article today about the record low amount of tornado activity throughout "Tornado Alley" so far this year. As of today there has not been one confirmed twister anywhere in Oklahoma or Kansas -a record. For the 43 county north/north central Texas region there have been 5 confirmed so far in 2018 (2 in January, 3 in March) This time last year this area had already had 19 confirmed, which is about average. Apparently the jet stream has dipped further south and east this year bringing us cold dry air and below average temps. It also has deflected the gulf air to the east so they have not combined as usual to form supercells. We are not out of the woods yet of course - May thru early June can be the worst but so far so good!

Maybe, just maybe we will enjoy a cooler than normal summer this year as a result of the southward movement of the jet stream. I know it's wishful thinking but hey! It could happen.

I believe the almanac calls for an above average May temperature wise, but every month after that is supposed to be cooler than normal for the rest of the year. I would definitely take that!
