Q:

When is tornado season in Alabama?

A:

For most of Alabama, tornado season is between March and May. However, areas around Tuscaloosa have a second tornado season from November to early December.

Although tornadoes can occur at any time of the day, they are most likely to occur between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. In Alabama, tornadoes most often move from the southwest to the northwest, although other directions are possible. The average tornado lasts about 10 minutes and can vary in speed from 30 miles per hour to 70 miles per hour. Although some weather has an increased likelihood of forming a tornado, these storms can also form without any warning.

  • Q:

    What are the months for each season?

    A:

    In the Northern Hemisphere, spring covers March, April and May; summer covers June, July and August; fall covers September, October and November; and winter covers December, January and February. There are no official allocations of the four seasons, though, and in the Southern Hemisphere, the seasons are reversed. When it's summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and when it is spring in the Northern Hemisphere, it is fall in the Southern Hemisphere. Many countries south of the equator, however, tend to have more tropical climates in which the evolution of the seasons is less evident.
