The Range of Severe Weather Across the U.S. | SERVPRO® of Pompano Beach
In terms of total land area, the United States ranks second only behind Russia and Canada as one of the world’s largest countries (though China is also larger if outlying U.S. territories are excluded).
Because of the size of the United States, weather patterns differ greatly from one region to the next. Each region has its unique harsh seasonal weather, which encompasses a wide range of weather risks.
As spring approaches and warm and cold air masses collide around the nation, including here in Florida, we’ll look at what each of the country’s main regions may anticipate.
Heavy rains in the spring produce significant floods and water damage across the Pacific Northwest. It may also be challenging in higher elevation places due to melting and runoff from spring snowfall.
The Upper Midwest and Northeast experience the country’s longest and coldest winters. From Maine to the Dakotas, the region usually experiences frigid weather into late spring and sometimes early summer.
People and their homes may be at risk during this time of year in the Southwest and southern West Coast due to extreme heat waves. Tsunamis may be triggered by tectonic activity in the South Pacific, including Hawaii.
When conditions are dry and windy, wildfires become a worry in the central United States. Tornado Alley, which is prone to powerful spring storms, is also located in this region.
Tornadoes and heavy thunderstorms are prevalent in the inland parts of the Southeast as spring approaches. Along the coast in the Southeast, early-season storms and hurricanes are also a possibility including here in Florida, as you’re surely well aware of. Starting in the spring and all through summer, thunderstorms are frequent. Florida records the highest number of thunderstorms in the United States. The most dangerous weather risks here are hurricanes and severe coastal storms.
Even if your risk of severe weather differs from a friend or family member in another state, being prepared is essential. Everyone in the United States is vulnerable to a wide range of severe weather events.
