While the so-called Snowmageddon and Snowicane tm blizzards that book-ended the month got much of the nation’s attention, not a single tornado was reported in the United States during February 2010.
According to the Storm Prediction Center (SPC), no tornadoes were reported last month.
“It’s a phenomenal feat that we went a month without a tornado,” said AccuWeather.com Expert Senior Meteorologist Henry Margusity.
If the statistic stands, it would be the first tornado-free February in at least 60 years.
February typically has 22 tornadoes on average, based on reports dating back to 1950 from the SPC.
