Spring Weather Outlook: Six Things You Should Know

Meteorological spring officially began on Tuesday, March 1, and astronomical spring starts on Sunday, March 20. Those dates usually mean the end of cooler temperatures and snowy weather across the United States. Will that be the case for 2022? Or will winter weather linger? Accuweather meteorologists have studied past weather patterns to find any indicators of what to expect this spring. Here are the top six things you should know: 

  1. Mid-spring cooldowns in the Northeast will bring the potential for frost and freezes later than expected. The return of colder air will also open the door for snowstorms.

  2. Potential mid-to late-spring storms in the Midwest will also bring the risk of flooding, with the highest chance expected across the Ohio Valley. The threat of flooding will be paired with the potential for severe weather.

  1. Storm systems will track over the Midwest and Northeast throughout the spring. Still, some areas to the south will miss out on most of the precipitation, raising some short-term drought concerns, specifically southeast North Carolina, eastern South Carolina to northern Florida.

  2. An early tropical system could minimize the drought concerns in the Southeast. Pre-season tropical systems are not out of the ordinary as of late, with a named storm developing in either April or May every year dating back to 2015.

  3. Severe weather season will waste no time kicking off this year. The worst of the storms and tornadoes may once again focus on areas outside of the traditional Tornado Alley which extends from central Texas through Nebraska.

Instead, the highest risk of damaging thunderstorms and tornadoes in March, April, and May will focus on the Gulf Coast states, Tennessee Valley, mid-Mississippi Valley, and the Ohio Valley.

  1. Meteorologists have predicted that 2022 will feature a slightly above-normal number of tornadoes across the U.S., with April likely to be the busiest month in terms of tornadoes. More than 200 twisters are projected to touch down in April, most of which will spin up across the central U.S. This estimate is more than double the number of tornadoes reported last April.
