We've already seen more than 400 tornadoes in the United States, and the severe weather season is just getting started.

Whether the storms will deliver another round of tornadoes is unknown.

Following a round of showers and thunderstorms from the Ohio Valley to the Gulf Coast on Thursday, activity will shift eastward to the mid-Atlantic and Southeast coasts on Friday. Others may even develop into severe storms. This does not mean that a tornado is imminent, but severe storms may produce a tornado somewhere in that region over the next few hours. Calm and dry weather is forecast through the weekend. There is a lot of extra details and meteorological information to learn about on his blog.
