Tornado Season Beings in November, Activity Still Unclear

JACKSON, Miss. – Tornadoes are one of the biggest threats to Mississippi and the season for them starts in November and lasts till May. Behind April, November is one of the peak months for the twisters./wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/wordpress/img/trans.gif

“It isn’t clear right now weather or not the fall will be active or not,” said National Weather Service Meteorologist Steve Wilkinson. “But just like hurricane season it only takes one event to be significant.”

Wilson says the factors for making November such a peak season are low pressure systems dropping south this time of the year combined with the warm weather that is pushed up from the Gulf of Mexico. He says once winter comes activity drops significantly, but the threat is still there.

This week has been declared Tornado Emergency Preparedness Week by Governor Phil Bryant.
