Record Low Number of Tornadoes for July, 2012.

August 31st, 2011

It was widely reported that the number of tornadoes across the nation last month was the lowest number ever recorded for the month of July.  Coincidently (or in keeping with my theory), tonight my monitored (snapshot) signals seemed to be as strong as I ever remember.  It seems that the stronger the signals, the less likelihood of the appearance of tornadic storms downwind in the nation’s heartland. 

Unfortunately, I was unable to monitor July’s signal conditions as I was on the east coast for most of that month.  However, before I headed east, I recall the signals were becoming steadily stronger.  I suspect the signals were strong during the month of July as well. 


Drought Helps Set July Record for Fewest Tornadoes

Drought Curtails Tornadoes

PS.  However, I don't know how my model should account for the remnants of hurricane Issac moving through much of the nation.
