Herald of Spring: The Good & The Bad
Last Updated: July 28, 2016 One herald of spring:
No matter which of the MLB’s 30 teams you support, one herald of spring is opening day, which is playing out on ball fields across the country, beginning this week. Many of you will be watching.For some, spring is all about this — opening day for Major League Baseball.If you’re a baseball fan, you may have tuned in to Sunday night’s opening day game between the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals. On Monday, you may have been rooting for either the Minnesota Twins or the Detroit Tigers. Or you may have seen the incredible foul ball catch one fan made in his popcorn bucket at the Mariners game against the Angels. Today, you might be cheering for the Phillies as they go up against Boston.
Another herald of spring — tornadoes
But spring is known for something else. In Tornado Alley and elsewhere around the country, it also heralds the opening day of storm season, including thunderstorms and tornadoes. And while you can put the opening day for your favorite ball team on your calendar months in advance, you can’t do the same with the opening day of storm season.This year, after getting off to a slow start, the spring storm season kicked off March 25 with F2 tornadoes that hit Oklahoma. Today, a severe weather outbreak of large hail, damaging wind and possible tornadoes — perhaps the worst so far this season — is predicted for the central U.S. across parts of the central and southern Plains and mid-Mississippi Valley, according to the Storm Prediction Center. About 30 million people live in the risk area, which includes Kansas City, St. Louis, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Indianapolis and Cincinnati.
