Fall – The Second Severe Weather Season

September 24, 2018 0 Comments

We have a possibility of severe thunderstorms Tuesday evening.  Severe weather during fall is not uncommon in central Illinois.

Two of most severe tornadoes we’ve seen have been fall twisters.  The first, the September 14th, 1965 Norwood-Peoria tornado.  By the way, for record keeping, fall is defined as September through November.

The benchmark for fall tornadoes is the Pekin and East Peoria tornadoes on November 17th, 2013.

Over 40 tornadoes have hit central Illinois during the fall since 1950.

Severe weather and tornadoes have hit the area during each month of the year, so just because it’s not “Prime Severe Weather Season”, take it seriously.
