CFS/Tropical Tidbits
February 28, 2021
🌞 March is expected to be slow in the severe weather department, but it is likely to be the calm before the storm as Severe Weather is expected to ramp up in April and early May...
Looking ahead into the month of March, a brief cooldown will affect the eastern 1/3 of the United States early in the month before a slightly warmer than normal regime takes hold by mid-month. Storm activity is expected to increase only modestly into the second half of the month before changes in the upper level pattern provide a ramp up in Severe activity. Heavy rain is expected across the Ohio and Tennessee Valley's in the meantime, especially during the second half of the month. Track Spring Storms with SWC Forecast Center and SWC Storm Chasers!
