Posted: 14 Oct 2014 05:44 AM

A powerful storm system that has brought us near non-stop rain for the past day also brought plenty of severe weather over the southern plains. The featured map displays the number of days since an individual NWS forecast office has issued a tornado warning. The numerous zeros plotted on the map show the extent of the recent warnings issued. Related to this, just last week, Seattle Washington office issued their first Tornado Warning since 1997! This particular map was popular on the Internet to show Seattle's tornado warning drought.
