2014 Tornado Stats: ‘So far, the tornado season has been another quiet one’


Tornado Stats

By Paul Homewood
Traditionally, US tornado counts peak in early June. It is encouraging then to be able to report that, so far, the tornado season has been another quiet one.
While not as low as last year’s record low count, it continues the trend of below average years, starting in 2012.
Many more tornadoes get to be reported these days, because of changes in observation procedures and technology, such as Doppler radar. To allow for this, the Storm Prediction Center produce “inflation adjusted” statistics of tornado counts dating back to 1954.
This method shows that, so far this year, tornado counts are well within the bottom 25th percentile.
