Georgia and Spring Weather | SERVPRO® of Northwest Cobb County
The United States is one of the world’s largest countries, beaten in total landmass only by Russia, China, and Canada.
Seasonal climate isn't one-size-fits-all in a country with such a huge and varied territory under one roof; different regions of the country experience unique weather patterns, implying they face varying degrees of weather hazards at various times throughout the year.
Different parts of the country have different weather patterns. For example, in the springtime, warm and cold air masses often collide in different parts of the US. Let's take a look at what to expect in some key regions, as well as what we need to be aware of here in Georgia.
The Pacific Northwest is vulnerable to significant rain throughout the spring, which may cause floods and water damage to homes. Snow will continue to fall at higher elevations, with the melting and runoff from that causing additional problems.
The Upper Midwest and Northeast have the longest winters to face as cold weather will stick around for the whole season. Extreme cold and the threat of snowstorms and blizzards may be expected stretching from Maine to the Dakotas until late spring or perhaps early summer, when temperatures begin to rise.
Excessive heat waves will plague the southern West Coast, while the South Pacific, including Hawaii, will be on high alert for tsunamis triggered by tectonic activity..
The Midwest, from Iowa to Texas, will face many weather threats this year. These include wildfires, windstorms, and derechos. When the winds are strong and it is dry outside, wildfires can quickly spread. Of course, Tornado Alley is part of this region, which has a high incidence of tornadoes.
Finally, there is the possibility of extreme weather in the Southeast. This can include tornadoes, powerful thunderstorms, and dangerous rip currents. Georgia is often hit by thunderstorms. In addition, remnants of tropical storms that arrived via coastal states might produce significant flooding on occasion.
No matter where you live in the United States, property damage due to extreme weather is a risk. Your state may have different risks than your friend's state, but it is always a good idea to be prepared.
Help is only a phone call away if your property has been damaged by water, fire, or other elements in extreme weather. For prompt, professional recovery, contact your local SERVPRO of Northwest Cobb County.
