Fall Severe Weather

wording, Fall Brings Severe Weather, Be Prepared, Cloud, lightning strike Fall brings 2nd wave of Severe Weather.

During the fall season the jet stream starts to shift southward in response to the Northern Hemisphere cooling off.  This leads to a second severe peak in weather.  The storms in fall can be just as severe as they are in the spring. With these storms can come high winds and down pours that cause flooding.  The Southern United States is the area of greatest concern for server weather in the fall.  The most severe weather is located from Teas to Georgia.  Other areas of concern are in the central Plains and the Mississippi Valley. 

The risk of severe weather from tropical systems diminishes during the fall due to hurricane season coming to an end in November.  Fall severe weather season in Alabama typically runs from the beginning of November until mid -December.  This weather system can sometimes start as early as October and run into the month of December.  Most storm-related damage occurs with severe thunderstorm winds.  We should keep in mind that severe weather can happen at any given time and always remain prepared. Treat a severe thunderstorm warning as you would a tornado due to the potential of strength and destruction it can bring.
