 The blue bars in the chart below show the number of tornadoes occurring in each month.  The red bars indicate the number of tornado days in each month.  A tornado day is defined as a day in which tornadoes occurred.  To help illustrate this concept, look at the month of May below.  The blue bar indicates that since 1950 a total of 18 tornadoes have occurred in May.  The red bar indicates that there has been 6 days in May when tornadoes occurred.  This means that one or more days had multiple tornado reports.  Looking at the table below, only two days in 2008 were responsible for 11 of those 18 tornadoes!

 

In the table below, Width is in yards, Length is in miles, M is missing. Scale lists the F or EF rating of the tornado.  A Scale of "F" indicates no rating is available.  Locations listed in capital letters are county names, with upper and lower case being city names.
