Which Month Is the Most Dangerous for Tornadoes in the United States

According to one study, May is the most dangerous month for tornadoes in the United States, with 329, while February is the safest with only 3. In another study the months December and January were usually the safest, and the months having the greatest number of tornadoes were April, May and June. In February, tornado frequency begins to increase, depending on the geographical area. February tornadoes tend to occur in the central Gulf states; in March the center of activity moves eastward to the southeastern Atlantic states where tornado activity peaks in April. In May the center of activity focuses on the southern Plains states; in June this moves to the northern Plains and Great Lakes area (into western New York).
