On The Origin of Tornadoes - 8

Teats of death
Some years back during this series I suspected that tornado count would go down as the Polar Vortex went through some disintegration (On The Origin of Tornadoes, 2, 3, 4, 5).

Since then we had a year with the record lowest tornado count (On The Origin of Tornadoes - 6).

Now, I am reminded of the phrase or meme "They're Back" uttered by a child in a "scary movie" some years back (After Several Quiet Years, Tornadoes Are Erupting Across the U.S.).

Unfortunately, the large tornado-per-year count is back, as was suspected in a previous post of this series in 2015: "The way things are going in the Arctic, in the next year or so we may see the number of tornadoes going back up" (On The Origin of Tornadoes - 7).

For the past couple of years now, in the Arctic area the Bering Sea has not been freezing over, resulting its historical sea ice cover  (Mysterious Zones of The Arctic - 7).

So, I guess you can say that I am a believer that Damaged Climate System conditions in the Arctic have an impact on U.S. tornado counts, and the evidence on record supports that notion.

Yes, things are wild (Hundreds of roads under water as historic flooding breaches levees and threatens communities) in the country Bob Dylan comes from, "the country I come from is called the Midwest" (With God on Our Side).

We can expect that to continue, because, among other things Greenland is looking to have a record breaking ice sheet mass loss this year according to Dr. Jason Box (see video below).

The previous post in this series is here.
