Default Re: Are our storm seasons getting weaker?

This "systems form, then die just before they hit us" is definitely something I have noticed this year.

The one tornado we have had so far this year was apparently helped along by colder air coming off Lake Erie (according to the Weather Network). I'm not a meteorologist but I wondered about that colder February and the extent of the ice coverage on the lakes as a factor in keeping lakes colder and possibly slowing things down for us so far this year? Despite what happened with that first one.

Maybe this toastier weather will get things going.
