Meteorologists confirmed Friday that the United States witnessed the lowest number of severe tornadoes in May since 1950.
“During the month of May, the United States saw 288 preliminary reports of tornadoes, above the May average of 276 tornadoes. None of these storms were rated as stronger than an EF2, marking the first time there has not been a tornado of EF3 strength or stronger in May since 1950, when record-keeping began. There were also no deadly tornadoes in the U.S. in May, making this the first year without a killer tornado in May since 2014,” reports Accuweather.
“May 2021 tornadic activity was a far cry from the unprecedented pace that unfolded just two years ago. In May 2019, there was a nearly two-week stretch during which tornado activity felt nonstop in the U.S., with a record 13 straight days on which at least eight or more tornado reports were issued. That month featured 556 tornadoes in total,” adds the website.
“This year has been a quiet one for severe storms in general,” said AccuWeather Senior Weather Editor and Meteorologist Jesse Ferrell.

BRAIN FREEZE: Denver Less Than 3 INCHES from All-Time Snow Record, Most Since 1891
The city of Denver, Colorado is now just three inches away from smashing their all-time record for snowfall after some spots saw accumulation of more than three times the average for the month of March.
“With an official 1 inch of snow that fell on Tuesday and another 0.6 of an inch that came down early Wednesday, Denver has now amassed 32.5 inches of snow this month, eclipsing the 1891 total of 31.3 inches in March of that year. March 2021 is now tied with 1944 for the second-snowiest March in the city’s history,” reports Accuweather.

“The city has a good chance of surpassing the shared 1944 total of 32.5 inches in the remaining days of the month and would need 2.8 inches of snow over the last week of March to top the all-time March record of 35.2 inches set in 2003,” adds the website.

“John Kerry said that there are only 9 years left to save the world from climate change. Does President Biden agree?” asked one reporter during the daily briefing.
“I don’t have a new timeline to give you from here. I can confirm for you though the President agrees with former Sec. Kerry that it’s a crisis,” said Psaki.

BRAIN FREEZE: Cortez Equates GLOBAL WARMING ‘Threat’ to NAZI GERMANY
Socialist superstar and Congressional hopeful Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to raise eyebrows over the weekend; bizarrely equating the threat of climate-change to Hitler’s Nazi Germany.
“So we talk about existential threats, the last time we had a really major existential threat to this country was around World War II,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And so we’ve been here before and we have a blueprint of doing this before.”
“None of these things are new ideas,” she continued. “What we had was an existential threat in the context of a war. We had a direct existential threat with another nation, this time it was Nazi Germany, and axis, who explicitly made the United States as an enemy, as an enemy.”
“We have to do the same thing in order to get us to 100% renewable energy, and that’s just the truth of it,” said Cortez.
