The largest nations in the world are Russia and Canada. The United States is a close second though, based on total land mass.

Having such a large nation means that “spring weather” can mean many different things for many people. Each season brings about distinct weather patterns, and the spring season is no different. And as we all know, different weather types can bring different weather threats.

The spring season is right around the corner, officially starting on March 20. Here’s a good look at what to expect in different areas of the country.

First up, the Pacific Northwest region. The weather here is wet with heavy rains, which can lead to flooding or water damage. In higher elevation areas, they are also possibly dealing with melting snow and ice, which cause problems of their own.

Moving to the Upper Midwest and Northeast regions, they are the ones that deal with the winter weather more than anyone else. In fact, they jump right over the spring season it seems, because during the spring months they are still dealing with snowstorms or blizzards! Sounds awfully cold to us here in North Carolina, right?

The West Coast, on the other hand, basically has a non-existent winter. Rather than cold weather, they are preparing for and dealing with excessive heat waves. These intense temperatures can put people in danger, but they also combine with dry conditions to create a fire hazard.

When you look at the Midwest, from Iowa to Texas, this is the middle part of the United States, where there are much drier, windy conditions. During the spring, they may face windstorms, derechos and wildfires. Because it’s so dry and windy, these wildfires can be easily spread and cause mass destruction. And as if that’s not enough, part of the region is also “Tornado Alley,” which is where tornadoes are most likely to occur.

And in our area, the Southeast region, we’re looking forward to pleasant temperatures and sunny days. But the spring also brings abundant rain at times, along with the threat of severe thunderstorms and even tornadoes. We’re landlocked here in Charlotte, but for our southern neighbors along the coast, rip currents and early-season hurricanes can also be a factor.

No matter where you live in this great nation, weather hazards are everywhere! That’s why whether you are on the West Coast or in the Southeast region, you must always be prepared.
