State College, Pa. — 3 March 2011 — AccuWeather reports the AccuWeather.com 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.
