Weather March Madness: Lots of Rain, Tornado Threat Not Heavy

NORMAN, OK– Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama on average have a greater threat of tornadoes in the the month of March than any other state. 

That can cause some worry, especially with all the expected rain this week. But there’s good news.

“At this point, the pattern is very quiet,” says Greg Carbin with the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center, “and it’s been a quiet year to start.”

On average, there are five tornadoes in the month of March. That nearly doubles to nine tornadoes on average in April.

Carbin says that as of right now, there’s nothing in the current forecast to indicate any threat.

“As we move through March and into April,” says Carbin, “that would be the time of year to start paying a little more attention to the weather.”
