The violent tornado outbreaks of the past several days, including the killer twister that hit Moore, Okla., on Monday, have shattered the calm of what had been a very quiet tornado season so far.

44 people were killed in the same town by an EF-5 tornado in 1999, about half of them kids. In fact, this is the 4th time this town has been hit by a major tornado. I don't want to sound insensitive, but what's so awesome about Oklahoma that makes raising your kids in the path of this kind of danger sound like a great idea? And why don't the schools in that area have underground reinforced bunkers for evacuating kids when one of these comes through? Just seems like people aren't taking these storms seriously enough. Each time they rebuild, they seem to assume it's not going to happen again. And then it does.

Those 44 deaths were not in Moore alone. That total also includes people from OKC, Midwest City and Dell City. Oklahoma is a wonderful place. Storms can happen anywhere. It's no different than people raising their children on the coasts of Florida, Louisiana, or the Carolinas. But I'd take Oklahoma over those states any day.

Nice to see that the spring subtropical air is finally starting to mix into the polar hood.

The Northern states have previously been complaining about a late spring.

Currently the climate mode is #3 which is a mite more efficient @ cooling the planet than mode#2. Expect as a result a "Pulsating" monsoonal flow which will produce large influxes of gulf moist air approximately every 3 weeks.

Being the follow on year from the mode change (April 2012) the perturbations have mostly evened out so there is not quite such a drought risk as last year.

One other note is that as monsoonal flows move from W to E in this mode rather than staying rooted in one spot, the bulk of developing hurricanes from Atlantic tropical waves will (as last year) recurve in the Atlantic rather than the Caribbean basin with the hurricanes in the Caribbean area relatively rare.

One other note of this W-E travel is that a hot pool will develop off the W. African coast (as happened last year).
