Since 2010 the United States have experienced the most extreme weather in our history, with nearly $200 billion in damage. The frequency and intensity of severe weather appears to be increasing: more tropical downpours and historic rainfall events, damaging derechos, and an apparent eastward shift in what is traditional “Tornado Alley”. A warmer atmosphere holds more water vapor, more fuel for “Black Swan” weather events. Is it our imagination or is America’s weather morphing, becoming more severe over time? A look at weather trends, and a (very) long-range prediction.
