March 3rd through 9th is Severe Weather Preparedness Week.  What do we need to be most worried about?  Accuweather meteorologist Maggie Johnson tells KEEL News that March, April and May — especially April — are the months when we typically see strong winds, hail, lightning, flash flooding and tornadoes.  “Last year, it wasn’t as active,” Johnson says.  “This year is going to be about average, but that is going to feel more active than what it was.”

She says staying informed on the weather, keeping an eye on the sky, and just knowing when the severe conditions are coming is the best tool we have in being able to properly prepare ourselves.
