Spring Brings Weather Hazards to Wisconsin | SERVPRO® of Cudahy/St. Francis

Extreme temperature changes can lead to the possibility of severe weather. SERVPRO of Cudahy/St. Francis is a click away if you experience any damage.

The United States is one of the world’s largest nations, second only to Russia and Canada in terms of total land area (though China is also larger if outlying US territories are excluded).

With such a large region under one umbrella, seasonal weather is not one-size-fits-all. Different parts of the nation endure unique weather patterns and variable degrees of weather threats.

As spring approaches and warm and cold air meet throughout the country, let’s take a look at the unique weather events that may be anticipated in a few broad areas, and more particularly what we need to consider here in Wisconsin.

Up in the Pacific Northwest, spring months are prone to severe rain, which may result in floods and water damage for region inhabitants. Higher altitudes will continue to have snow, and the melting and runoff from that will create issues of its own.

The Upper Midwest, including here in Wisconsin, and the Northeast regions have the longest duration of cold winter weather. Chilly weather will persist for the entirety of the winter season. As spring arrives, severe thunderstorms are a threat here in Wisconsin, continuing throughout the summer months. Residents from Maine to the Dakotas may anticipate very cold weather winters and the threat of snowstorms and blizzards even until late spring or possibly early summer.

On the other hand, the southern West Coast will have to watch out for excessive heat waves that could threaten lives and property, while the South Pacific, including Hawaii, will be on the lookout for potential tsunamis caused by tectonic activity.

The central United States, from Iowa to Texas, will need to be vigilant for windstorms, derechos and the threat of wildfires, which may readily spread during dry seasons and strong winds. A large portion of this territory is also Tornado Alley, an area with a high frequency of tornadoes.

Finally, the Southeast may be subjected to a variety of extreme weather events, ranging from tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in landlocked states to hazardous rip currents along the coastal areas with early-season hurricanes later in the spring.

Regardless of where you reside in the United States, the possibility of severe weather exists. Yours may differ from that of a friend a few states away, but it never hurts to be aware of the times and be prepared.

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