Because of its size, the United States contains perhaps one of the most diverse climates of any country in the world. Seasonal weather patterns are not the same throughout the nation, resulting in a wide range of weather threats across the country. 

Let’s take a broad brush to what each of the different regions of the U.S. might be able to anticipate, including here in Georgia, as spring approaches and warm and cold air masses clash over the country.

Flooding and water damage often occur during the spring months in the Pacific Northwest due to heavy rains. It’s likely that melting and runoff from spring snowfall at higher elevations may create its own problems as well.

Winters in the Upper Midwest and Northeast are the longest and coldest. Even into late spring and early summer, residents from Maine to the Dakotas may expect frigid temperatures, blizzards and plenty of snow.

People and property in the Southwest and southern West Coast may be at risk from extreme heat waves as spring rolls in. And in the South Pacific, which includes Hawaii, there is a possibility of tectonic activity-caused tsunamis.

When conditions are dry and windy in the central United States, essentially from Iowa down to Texas, wildfires are also on the radar and can spread swiftly in the right conditions. This region in the middle of the country is also susceptible to severe and highly destructive spring storms as the region contains what is known as Tornado Alley because of its high risk of tornadoes.

Severe weather events, from thunderstorms and tornadoes on land to early-season hurricanes near the coast, may be expected throughout the Southeast, including here in Georgia (as you may already be well aware of). While storms don’t happen constantly throughout the spring season in the state of Georgia, when they do occur, they tend to be quite severe.

* Regardless of where you are in the United States, even though your risk might be different than relatives or friends in other states, you are surely still at risk for severe weather and you can never be too prepared for harsh weather conditions. If extreme weather leaves you with damage from water, fire or other elements, help is a click away.
