Winter Tornadoes In The US

“The Arklatex into mid-South NWS offices are often the busiest when it comes to tornado formation in December. You can almost envision low pressures passing near the Gulf coast and sending warm fronts through these areas looking at the map.”

Here’s where tornadoes typically form in December across the United States –

  1. How can a severe tornado possibly be considered exceptional or novel in a region known colloquially as ‘tornado alley’. Doesn’t anybody consider how the region acquired its nickname? There have been films, both fictional and documentaries, made about it as long as there has been cinema, I’m sure a tornado was the basis of a Buster Keaton silent movie. What was the opening scene to the original ‘Wizard of Oz’? It’s rather like claiming the ocean is wet because of ‘climate change’.

    This Sunday Journal and Star article serves as proof climatology isn’t and never will be a predictive science. It’s a post hoc descriptive study of global weather patterns plus long range weather forecasting and that’s it.
    Embedded in my mind is this summary from IPCC-2001 stating: “The climate system is a coupled non-linear chaotic system and therefore long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.” It should be inscribed on the gravestone of every climatologist for us to see while we reflect on the unwisdom of scientists.

    I was amazed reading the front page of the Sun-Democrat.

    At the top, the tragedy left behind by the storms, “Tornadoes Leave 320 Dead”.

    At the bottom, I read “Wholesale Prices Up Again” and “Newsmen Say Presidential Impeachment Is Likelihood”.

    Will we see in the future what we have seen in the past?
