The United States is one of the largest countries in the world, coming in second to Russia and Canada based on total land.

When you have a large area like the United States, that means that “seasonal weather” can many different things. There are different weather patterns that occur in different parts of the country, and they cause different weather threats.

With spring upon us, warm and cold air will collide, causing different weather events all throughout the nation. That’s why you must stay prepared.

Let’s look at the Pacific Northwest, which experiences heavy rains during the spring months, often leading to flooding or water damage of some kind. The higher elevations areas here may still have some snow, which can cause problems of its own.

Looking at the Upper Midwest and Northeast regions, you’ll see that spring for this region is actually still winter-like weather. Residents in Maine are likely going to still have snowstorms and blizzards! It’s almost like this region jumps from winter to summer.

Opposite of these regions, the southern West Coast will be looking out for excessive heat waves. In the South Pacific, including Hawaii, they may also be watching for tsunamis.

The middle part of the United States has dryer air, but it’s very windy! This region will have to be prepared for windstorms, derechos and wildfires. With the region being so dry and windy, it’s important to remember how quickly a wildfire can spread with these types of weather conditions. There is also what is known as “Tornado Alley” in this region, so tornadoes can be a problem as well.

Lastly, let’s look at the Southeast region that we call home. This area experiences severe weather conditions leading to anything from severe thunderstorms to tornadoes. In this region, there are some coastal states that will have to be on the lookout for early-season hurricanes.

Weather can be unpredictable, but if you know the regions and their weather conditions, you can stay better prepared. While the weather you experience can look much different than that of someone in a neighboring state, there are hazards everywhere.

If extreme weather leaves you with damage from water, fire or other elements, help is a click away. Contact SERVPRO for fast, expert recovery.
