BLOG: 2015 Tornadoes

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - So how is 2015 stacking up so far with tornadoes around the country?

One word:  Yawn!!!

But that's a good thing, a VERY good thing.  I've linked you to a great article from that goes into lots of detail and statistics, but here are some of the highlights.

Through the end of March, the United States has only experienced seven tornado days.  In 2012 we already had 35 days with tornadoes by this point.  Typical annual totals average around 150 - 180 days; that's nearly a tornado (or more) occurring every other day throughout the entire year.  But this year so far is a continuation of a string of quiet Spring Tornado Seasons that dates back to 2013, three straight years now.

Focusing solely on March, it looks like confirmed tornadoes will end up around seven.  By comparison, March 1976 had 180 that month alone; 2007 had 170 in March.

As any investor will tell you, past performance is not a guarantee of future results, so we can only hope this peaceful weather pattern will continue.
