Tornado Climatology

Post by Toot on 2012-05-03, 8:16 am

Since Adam wont post as good info here as he does on his wx page.. I guess I will have steal some of it. This amazing image shows TOR tracks for the last 60+ years and one can clearly see the protection that the Appalachians offer (most of the time) here in east TN and other mountainous areas.

Anyways thought it was a cool image smoke

Very very cool map. The April 2011 general track seems to have played out often over the years. Southern Mississippi to northern Alabama to east Tennessee...

Just another good reason to live here. Of course, last April, the valley almost seemed to "funnel" the tornadoes right up over us.

Just looking over the map I find the one main track across Florida to be interesting as well. From Tampa to the east northeast.
