State of the Climate Monthly Overview - National Tornadoes

The State of the Climate is a collection of periodic summaries recapping climate-related occurrences on both a global and national scale. The State of the Climate Monthly Overview - National Tornadoes provides a summary of tornadic activity in the United States. Tornado occurrences and significant events, including storms and outbreaks, are covered. Regular monthly and annual reports begin in July 2008. Spring "tornado seaso" reports are available for 2006 and 2008. In some months during climatologically inactive periods, the narrative part of this report may be omitted.

Users should modify according to their writing style.", "Please note that State of the Climate reports are based upon operational datasets. The official operational datasets chosen for the report can and do change over time. The nature of these changes can be evolutionary, such as addition of previously-missing data or changes due to quality-assurance algorithms. Changes may also be revolutionary, in that a new version of an operational dataset, or a different dataset altogether, are adopted for official use. In any of these cases, the values presented in the State of the Climate reports reflect those known at the time, using the official dataset at the time. Values are not updated or edited within past reports, unless otherwise noted, even if the underlying official dataset has since changed."]
