Reviewing the 2016 tornado year with the “Ice Station Housman” podcast
With the calendar flip to December, we’re staring down the end of yet another year. When it comes to tornadoes, 2016 was a year of some oddities. It started off fast, with a major outbreak in February, then it was relatively tame during peak season, and turned very quiet until recently.
What the United States lacked in overall tornado numbers — they’re near historic lows — it made up in interesting and out of season events. Even in the quieter years, there can be extraordinarily memorable days, like the one we ran into on May 24.
UStornadoes.com member Katie Wheatley and I joined the Ice Station Housman podcast to discuss the 2016 tornado year, the big events, and how it compares, along with a smattering about chasing.
