No Tornadoes So Far This November

17 Nov 2016, 10:33 am

November typically is not a big month for tornadoes, but surprisingly no touchdowns have been reported so far this month anywhere in the nation. The November tornado average is 58, with the most active areas along the Gulf Coast states. Since 1950,  Texas, Mississippi, and Alabama have seen more than 200 November tornadoes each according to


99 tornadoes were reported in November last year according to the Storm Prediction Center. Since 1950, every year has seen a tornado in November. The least was in 2009 with only one tornado touchdown.

The largest November tornado outbreak occurred in 1992 on November 21-23. 105 touchdowns were reported those three days. Several years from 2000 to 2005 were very active November tornado months as well.



Statistically, four out of the five biggest tornado outbreaks in November have happened in the second half of the month, so it is likely that at least one tornado will be reported before the month comes to an end. The drought across portions of the Southeastern U.S. is the main contributing factor to the lack of severe weather reports nationally this month.
