I'm okay with the strong storms. Nothing is better than sitting outside in the summer on your porch listening to the sounds of rain! But tornadoes...eh I'm good!

Also, are you even from Kansas if this isn't you OR your dad though? LOL

But, anywho, back to business.

It's not just Kansas that's expected to get bad this storm season. It also includes: OK, TX & NE.

“We believe that the more traditional severe weather region of the central and southern Plains will have a higher potential for tornadoes and severe weather more frequently than they have experienced on average the past three years,” said AccuWeather Lead Long-Range Meteorologist Paul Pastelok.

“We believe warmer-than-normal sea surface temperatures over the Gulf of Mexico will lead to increased moisture transport from the Gulf over the region and ultimately a higher frequency of severe weather in these areas,” Pastelok said.

They're predicting there will be 1,075 tornadoes in 2019.
