- May 18, 2013
So far 2022 has been above average in number of tornados (343 thru 4/3/22 vs 240 average) - although a few active days do skew the metrics such that the season seems better than it actually is. Quality is a different mater. I don't have any scientific evidence to back this up - but it does fell a lot like last year. If that gut is true - chasers are advised to get out if they can in April, just in case May turns out to be a slow month (that is probably true every year - chase often because you never know when the season is going to fall apart).
