Are Lake Zurich Residents Ready for Spring Weather?


Every state has experienced various degrees of winter weather this season. The West Coast dealt with storms very early on and the Southeast had an onslaught of ice storms. Meteorological Spring is March 1st, but there is still potential for some winter weather in parts of the United States. ServiceMaster DSI will break down what spring weather will look like in the Lake Zurich region.

Winter to linger over Midwest

While winter took its time coming into the Midwest, once we hit the New Year, the weather pattern took a drastic turn. With record-breaking snowfalls and subzero temperatures, this year will develop into a “reverse spring” according to the Farmer’s Almanac. Colder temperatures will hold on past the vernal equinox, March 20th. The cold and potential snowfall is projected to last one to two weeks longer than the previous spring seasons, having a great impact on the farmers in the Midwest with planting on the horizon.

Flooding Risks

There is a great chance of severe in storms mid to late spring. Coupled with the melting snow, this will create the perfect environment for floods in the Lake Zurich area. The model below shows the areas of the United States with the greatest risk of flooding during the spring season

Severe Weather

It is projected that tornado season will start early and maintain a steady pace throughout the Spring. The severe weather is also shown to happen outside of Tornado Alley. April is most likely going to be the most active month, with a predicted 200 twisters touching down throughout the midwest. This is more than double the number of tornadoes in 2021. Below is a model with the predicted tornado touchdowns.
