Press release: Spring 2011 forecast includes more wild weather

State College, Pa. — 3 March 2011 — AccuWeather reports the forecast for Spring 2011 calls for more wild weather for the U.S. The biggest concerns center around expectations of an active severe weather season, the spreading of a severe drought and a high wildfire danger, and, as always, threats for flooding.

Paul Pastelok, leader of the Long-Range Forecasting Team, warned that this spring’s severe weather season will be more active than normal, meaning there could be a higher-than-average number of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in the eastern part of the country.
