About Me[edit]

I live in Silver Spring, Maryland and am super obsessed with weather, like the Wikipedia user United States Man (talk). I check the weather every ten to fifteen minutes when I can and usually take at least 5 minutes to do that. I have wanted see a tornado for months. Here are some examples of my idea of an interesting tornado outbreak-

EF0 EF1 EF2 EF3 EF4 EF5 Total
94 92 73 18 7 3 287
EF0 EF1 EF2 EF3 EF4 EF5 Total
117 98 83 21 6 4 329
EF0 EF1 EF2 EF3 EF4 EF5 Total
76 76 29 4 2 1 192
EF0 EF1 EF2 EF3 EF4 EF5 Total
56 13 15 2 9 4 99










Let's say all of those outbreaks made up a whole month's total. So here's what the month's total would be-

EF0 EF1 EF2 EF3 EF4 EF5 Total
343 279 200 45 26 12 907



Anyways. Here's some climate data for where exactly I live.
