NOAA Tornado data: 2016 ‘one of the quietest years since records began in 1954’ – Below average for 5th year in a row



Another Quiet Year For Tornadoes

NOVEMBER 12, 2016
By Paul Homewood  


As the year winds down, it looks like being yet another very quiet one for tornadoes in the US.

Based on provisional data to Nov 11th, only 2013 has had less tornadoes since 2005.

After “inflation adjusting”, which takes account of the fact that many more tornadoes get to be reported nowadays because of changing technology, 2016 also looks like being one of the quietest since records began in 1954.


It normally takes about three months for local storm reports to be confirmed as tornadoes, and classifications made. Currently, the SPC have confirmed data up to July, so there may some small changes to the above figures.

Meteorologist Bastardi on 2016 Tornado season: ‘Extreme lack of tornadoes. Will need ‘second season’ to stop it from being quietest year on record!’

Flashback: NOAA: Number of major tornadoes in 2015 was ‘one of the lowest on record’ – Tornadoes below average for 4th year in a row – ‘The year finished with 481 tornadoes of EF-1 strength or greater, the fourth year in a row that has been below average. Perhaps more significantly, the number of EF-3 and stronger tornadoes was one of the lowest on record. You have to go back to 1987 to find fewer. There were no EF-5s at all, and only three EF-4s.’


  1. “Diversity” never means anything other than Less White People.

    When is any population or institution “too black” “too yellow” etc. and needing of “diversity”?

    Why are All & Only white populations targeted for mass immigration and ‘diversity’?

    Because # White Geno Cide
    Because #Anti White

  2. Congress voted down the Kyota deal. Nevertheless, Obama has paid Billions to the UN for Global warming.


  3. It’s global warming, we need more tornadoes. Here’ thinking out of the box on faux global warming, if all the sheep would just commit mass suicide ah-la Jim Jones style, just think of all the Co2 that would not be released into the atmosphere out of the pie holes of all these bleating sheep. Problem solved.

  4. Lets hope that with the election of Donald trump that the weather starts cooperating and bring back Tornadoes , Hurricanes and more wild swings of the temperature. Under Obama and the ” Man Made Global Warmers ” at the UN the weather has made them look like total Fools .

  5. I thought with Climate Change or Global Warming or whatever they want to call it, was projecting every increasing hurricanes and tornado’s in numbers and intensity. Huh? Oh I forgot we are going to have winter’s without snow because of higher temperatures but at the same time the polar vortex is going to cause us to have colder winters. My head is spinning I think I need to sit down for a while. Wait until generation of global warming find out the oceans are at a level 200 feet higher than it was 15,000 years about not including the Industrial Era emissions. I guess someone needs to go and adjust their computer models, AGAIN!

  6. Magic Climate… i’m coining the term here and now.
    Thank God for algae and trees
    TG for CO2
    TG for the sun
    TG for the water
    TG for the soil
    It’s tricky business, but thank God we know to keep as clean as possible and let Him sort the rest out.

  7. Yea, bur how about those 125 hurricanes that hit the US this year — increasing the warmth and speeding up Man Made Climate Change. Was the first fire built by the cave man the first step in Man Made Climate Change? Splain that, please.

  8. The basic problem with the position of current day Climate Change promoters is that the underlying force behind their beliefs is based on ideological irrationality rather than a truthful analysis of climate science.

  9. Hey, where are the paid CAGW trolls since the election? Anyone else notice the absence? Not missing them, it’s just that we’ve been able to peruse and digest the news rather than sort through the subterfuge they were blaring.

  10. And thus came down the Pharisees from the high church of Climate Change and Cardinal Gore said “I told you this would happen!” Now bow down and pay me your carbon taxes of I will melt your polar bear habitat.

  11. This is an alarming trend. The sudden paucity of tornadoes, hurricanes, droughts, and earthquakes is endangering the livelihoods of our entire professional alarmist community. Both Ralph Nader and Al Gore were recently seen in threadbare old clothes and with holes in the soles of their shoes, with Gore actually panhandling on the streets of West LA and drinking from a bottle of Jive Seven Wine, a popular beverage among the “street people.” This is a looming crisis that deserves immediate attention.

  12. Climate change is a growing problem. Just yesterday it was cold outside but today it is several degrees warmer. Tomorrow it is supposed to be cool and rainy. See the climate is changing every dang day. I’m building a bunker.

  13. When data is reported honestly without a political agenda the results speak for themselves. In this just completed election cycle there was zero mention in any of the debates related to “Global Warming/cooling” or climate change, why? It wasn’t raised because internal polling at the DNC indicated that the issue wasn’t on the radar of the public. The DNC without a platform to push or a successful administration whose coattails they could ride into the White House resorted to gutter political attacks against the opposition. They lost because they lost track of what really concerns the majority of the people, their personal well being.

  14. The meme, can’t call it a theory, that global warming will bring more and stronger tornadoes and hurricanes was advanced for one single reason, to scare people and ingender concern for life, property and the children. Never mind that data for the last several decades refutes the warning. Effectively this is the same old liberal clap-trap.

  15. Once again we see the effects of man made global climate change. First a pause in raising temperatures. Then a dramatic decrease in hurricanes. Now a slowing of tornados. What’s next? We must act now!

  16. Even IPCC’s 2013 AR5 report (Chapter 2 pages 155~283) admits NO increasing global trends of severe weather incidence/severity for the past 60~116 years for: hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, tornadoes, floods, droughts, tropical storms, sub-tropical storms, thunderstorms, hail, etc.,….

    And yet Leftist political hacks and the MSM keep repeating the lie that global severe weather trends are “increasing at unprecedented rates.”

    If CAGW is “no longer up for debate”, why do Leftist feel the need to lie about what the empirical evidence actually shows?

    Why indeed…

  17. Dang it, we need to redefine what a Tornado is. How will Catastrophic Climate change be supported if none of the predictions is accurate????? There must be more Tornadoes and Hurricanes, there have to be, or the Climate Cult Gurus look like parasitic fear mongers and corrupt money grubbers.

  18. Global warming, or cooling, or something, or whatever the wizards are calling it today (global hockey stick?) strikes again. I’m sure the Paris climate deal will get us right back to having lots of tornadoes, again; that’ll fix it.

  19. Not wait a minute. I heard the man made global warming folks shouting a few years ago, we were going to have a massive increase in tornadoes a massive increase increase in hurricanes , Also Gore said in 1988 that by the year 2000 Tennessee was not going to have anymore winters. He also said the ice would gone at the poles by 2012. I could type for hours about how wrong these global warming, climate change people have been wrong

  20. HURRICANES TOO! so…lack of sunspots on Sun (seems to) correlates to lack of atmospheric disturbance on Earth. Makes sense…no, or little, UltraViolet light hitting upper atmosphere does not heat the upper atmosphere, so that low density air is not created up there as it is during high Sunspot activity…hot upper atmosphere is less dense causing an uprising of cool – more dense – air….which is not normal for cool air to rise…but if there’s a layer of LESS DENSE air above it – it will ! like a bubble on an bicycle tire bulges. And that causes hurricanes and tornadoes….well…THAT’S MY EXPLANATION OF IT>

  21. Simple. All the tornados have been sucked down the fracking holes and THAT is pure anthropogenic climate change. Those tornados are spinning down there and one day they will all release. When they eventually all whirl to the surfae? Only Trump loyalists will be sucked into the funnels and Obama will be president again. At least that is what I read in the NYT and saw on MSNBC.

  22. Gee! Weren’t we supposed to have more bad tornadoes and hurricanes due to global warming? Wait let me fall back on the alarmists’ theorem ‘When it gets colder, it is a sign of global warming’. So applied to storms the lack of storms is a sign of global warming. But wait, isn’t that a good thing? However, I won’t talk about Danny Glover’s blaming global warming for earthquakes. Have we had any of those lately to confirm his statement?

  23. Like all the other facts, these facts will not dissuade the faithful. The way most of them defend climate change is by stating that fewer tornados, hurricanes, less rain or snow, or whatever the weather condition is, is the result of man-made behavior. It’s the new religion, which interestingly enough, is 100% man-made.

  24. Global climate change isn’t about climate; it’s about dismantling capitalism. To deny climate change is like claiming there was no ice age, but the ‘why’ is what’s disputed. There is more direct evidence in aluminum and barium aerosols causing glacier and polar damage than climate change’s unaltered numbers on CO2 emissions.

  25. I’d say this is bad news for Climate Chicken Littles but since “man-made climate change” results in ALL extremes (too hot, too cold, more hurricanes/tornadoes v fewer hurricanes/tornadoes, etc.) then it won’t stop Gore or DiCaprio from jetting around the world to lecture the rest of us about “environmental awareness”.

  26. So there are some very significant benefits to Global Warming. Sorry I meant Climate Change since there really hasn’t been statistically significant warming. Funny how virtually every other prediction made by the Global Warming charlatans 20 years ago has not occurred. Gore’s Inconvenient Truth should have been titled Convenient Lies.

  27. Empirical scientific data either proves or disproves a theory and in this case, as in countless others, the theories of MAM-MADE climate change are false. This doesn’t mean that mankind is off the hook for his treatment of the only home he can safely live on, on the contrary… our pollution, while not enough to effect the temperatures on the planet, are still enough to kill wildlife, create disease, and ruin our ecosystem in other, more profound ways. One only needs to look at the extinctions of animal species since the 20th century to know where we are headed. If the scientist are accurate who are currently studying our sun, the sun is showing signs of another Mulder minimum, where sunspot activity is low or nonexistent. Earth may also be going thru it’s own changes, as we may be headed for a pole reversal, which happens from time to time. Who knows, we may be taken back to the stone age before all is said and done.

  28. The Greenhouse Effect did it did it!
    Global Warming did it!
    Climate Change did it!
    Global Climate Disruption did it!
    Kimate Kaos did it!
    Anthropogenic Meteorological Higgledy-Piggledyness did it!
    A tornado is that which requires the Carbon Tax on Everything to be paid. We are all tornadoes.

    The dog ate my climate.

  29. If this were the result of “Global Warming”, then the climate change advocates would be forced to admit it is a *beneficial* effect. So I don’t expect to see this data as part of Al Gore’s travelling PowerPoint presentation. If there were slightly more tornadoes than average this year, you bet your sweet @ss the warmists would have it plastered all over the news. And every grammar school student would be regurgitating it to their parents when asked what they learned in school today.

    One of the big reasons people see through the hoax is that the advocates focus only on hyperbolic gloom and doom scenarios. So even the most casual skeptics can easily recognize the totally biased reports as propaganda. If the climate were indeed getting slightly warmer as a result of AGW, I believe for the most part the consequences would not be exceptionally dire (certainly not worth destroying the economies of every advanced nation on earth over) and there would be as many winners as losers. It’s very hard to get people to hand over their hard-earned money and their freedoms to the U.N. telling the truth though.

  30. Global warming causes more extreme weather. It is extremely nice to have fewer hurricanes and tornadoes. Therefore, this wonderfully moderate weather is an extreme expression of the reality of global warming.

    – Some Befuddled Grant-Seeking Climate “Scientist.”

  31. How is Gore’s beach house in Florida? Shouldn’t it be underwater by now, according to his own predictions? and yet the beaches are virtually exactly the same as when his movie came out. we just got lucky I guess.
