Historical Data And A Look At Last Season

Recommended Posts

Just occurred to me that my Blog is not in my Signature at the moment, so to save the Newbies who are starting to look at the StormChase Area time trawling through all last years threads I am attaching my Blog which shows all the 2010 Chases from April 29th through to June 8th.

http://plainschaser.blogspot.com/

When you get onto the Blog the last Chase is the top Report, when you get to the bottom click "Older Posts" and you should see the rest of the Trip, I suppose when you have all the Older posts opened you could start from the bottom and work your way up :wacko: :lol:

Also if you want to see the 2009, 2008, 2007 Seasons they are all on there as well. I only have 2006, 2005 & 2004 to Upload.

Hopefully those Accounts will show partly what it is like on a StormChase Day, if you want to match the days with the Original Threads on here (Pages 1-4) the Discussion Pages are pretty good to look through as they show our Forecasts and Discussion on the Morning of the Chases as well.

Going to do 1 of these for each of our Chase Dates over the next 7 weeks, so seeing as we are Starting our Chase this year on April 30th here are some Stats on this date and where we are likely to be Chasing. This also should be a good exercise to show how the Season Transitions from South to North and also ultimately will show the hottest day statistically in the last 12 years I already know it but it will be good to put it out there

There have been 105 Tornadoes on April 30th in the Period 1999-2010 which works out at an average of 8.9 Per Day. The Largest has been Classed as EF4/F4

42 last year :o That was the High risk in Arkansas?

It was the day after the back to back High Risks, although many of the tornados were a continuation into the early hours of the overnight outbreak which started the previous day in Arkansas. There were only 5 or 6 confirmed in Arkansas if I remember correct of which one was the DeWitt tornado you guys saw. None caused significant damage in the High Risk area but there were 4 fatalities the following evening in Missisppi from a number of strong tornadoes after dark.

Moving onto the 7th May now and nothing too inspiring apart from a Mini Outbreak in 2002 in Kansas which spawned a few F3 Tornadoes with just a few Injuries. Apart from that an average type of day over the last 12 years. There was also quite a few Tornadoes in a mini outbreak in 2003 on this day.

Now onto the 8th May and we start to see a definate shift Northwards now and leave Texas Behind, although Texas can light up much later than this in the Season it would appear the 8th May has not seen much action, Kansas and Missouri right in the Middle of both Tornado and Dixie Alley are the Bullseye areas. There was quite a large Outbreak once again in 2003 with an F4 Injuring 134 People in Oklahoma in Cleveland County.

There have been 171 Tornadoes on the 8th May in the period 1999-2010 which works out at an average rounded down to 14 per day - The largest rated F4 in Oklahoma in 2003

Finally onto the last Chase Day of Tour 1 and some quirky and strange facts about this day, the Shift Northwards is still apparant but the amazing fact is Kansas has not had a single Tornado in the last 12 years but ALL States around it have :wacko: There was one notable Outbreak again in 2003 with 31 Tornadoes but overall not a record setting day. Strange that California has had more Tornadoes on this day than both Kansas and Colorado as well. Just 1 Killer Tornado occured on the 9th May 2006 in Westminster (Texas) of which I chased.

There have been 95 Tornadoes on the 9th May in the period 1999-2010 which works out at an average rounded up to 8 per day - The largest rated F3 in Oklahoma in 2003 and Texas in 2006

By State these 95 Tornadoes are broken down as Follows

May 9th

OKLAHOMA - 13

MINNESOTA - 13

N CAROLINA - 12

TEXAS - 11

S DAKOTA - 8

ARKANSAS - 6

MISSOURI - 5

VIRGINIA - 5

OHIO - 4

INDIANA - 3

ILLINOIS - 2

ALABAMA - 2

CALIFORNIA - 2

WASHINGTON - 2

NEBRASKA - 1

COLORADO - 1

WYOMING - 1

VERMONT - 1

IDAHO - 1

And By Year

1999 - 12 Tornadoes - 8 S Dakota (3) Texas and (1) Washington

2000 - 8 Tornadoes - (4) Arkansas (3) Ohio and (1) Indiana

2001 - 10 Tornadoes - (9) Minnesota and (1) Nebraska

2002 - 3 Tornadoes - (1) Colorado (1) Ohio and (1) Illinois

2003 - 31 Tornadoes - (10) Oklahoma (9) N Carolina (5) Virg (5) Missouri (Ill) (1) Indiana

2004 - 7 Tornadoes - (4) Minnesota (2) Iowa and (1) Indiana

2005 - 4 Tornadoes - (2) California (1) Washington and (1) Idaho

2006 - 10 Tornadoes - (5) Texas (3) Oklahoma and (2) Alabama

2007 - 3 Tornadoes - (3) Texas

2008 - 4 Tornadoes - (3) North Carolina and (1) Wyoming

2009 - 3 Tornadoes - (2) Arkansas and (1) Vermont

2010 - 0 Tornadoes

Next up is the first Changeover Day namely 10th May which last year saw a Massive Outbreak in Oklahoma with a few EF4 Tornadoes and unfortunately some Fatalities

Final Figures for Tour 1 to look over sees a Healthy Chase Period with the following numbers

Apr 30th : 105 Tornadoes

May 01st : 144 Tornadoes

May 02nd : 94 Tornadoes

May 03rd : 129 Tornadoes

May 04th : 195 Tornadoes

May 05th : 204 Tornadoes

May 06th : 140 Tornadoes

May 07th : 101 Tornadoes

May 08th : 171 Tornadoes

May 09th : 95 Tornadoes

So there were 1,388 Tornadoes in This Period which is an average of 139 in the 10 Chase Days or an Average Tornado Count per day of 12 Rounded Up.

So rounded up, is there a chance I'll see more than one touchdown this year? :cray:

Just think if changeover day had happened a day later and Campo (31st) had been a day earlier then you would have seen 6 Tornadoes - I cant make the weather happen on a certain day as you know. Just remember I know some people that have been going for 5 years and not seen a Photogenic Tornado, it even took Nathan (Gorky) 3 years to see a Tornado worthy of a Picture.

4th trip for the first photogenic one for me actually. Though I blame the weather patterns and my timing for most of that. 2008 was a great year in general but I arrived just after one outbreak and left before the next big one. Don't even start about 2009! Luckily I more than made up for that last year ;)

I imagine May 10th will be another biggie. Large events in 2003/2008/2010 come to mind.

Hi Nathan

Yes May 10th is another Biggie! Includes 3 x EF4's including the 21 Fatalities at Pitcher (Ok) in 2008 along with the Outbreak in 2010 and another biggie in 2003 which had 3 or 4 F3 Tornadoes in Illinois.

Another Big Day!

May 10th Now and this is a Changeover day for 2011 so lets hope it is not an active date. This day falls 2nd in the days we have covered so far with 198 Tornadoes and 3 Notable Outbreaks in the last 12 years. In 2003 Fifty one Tornadoes tore across the Mid West with 2 Notable F3 Tornadoes in Illinois injuring 65 people, again in 2008 and this time it was Oklahoma's turn with Pitcher in NE Oklahoma taking a direct hit with an EF4 Tornado which unfortunately killed 22 and injured 375 People including the Death of a EMS Spotter. And History was to repeat last year in 2010 with another High Risk Outbreak with 2 notable EF4 Tornadoes with 2 Fatalities confirmed in Oklahoma. So this day settles in between May 4th and May 5th.

There have been 198 Tornadoes on the 10th May in the period 1999-2010 which works out at an average rounded up to 17 per day - The largest rated EF4 in Illinois in 2003 and in Oklahoma in both 2008 and 2010
