Fall Storm Weather!
Meteorological fall began this past weekend on September 1st! The meteorological seasons are defined by the annual temperature cycles in groups of three months at a time. Hurricanes, tornadoes and snow are just a few of the weather types that fall brings. Many people associate summer with hurricane season but hurricane season is actually only halfway over. The Atlantic hurricane season officially ends November 30th so hurricanes are still of concern. This storm season lasts in to the fall because the atmospheric conditions are typically more favorable for a larger area of the Atlantic Basin. Not only do we still have to take precautions for hurricanes in the fall but this is also the considered the second season for tornadoes. The low pressures that the U.S. experiences in the fall can help set up the perfect recipe for severe thunderstorms and tornadoes.
Be sure to take the necessary precautions to prepare your home for potential damage caused by the changing fall weather!
