Greensboro, NC -- It the question many of you are asking: what's going on with this storm season? Why is the weather so bad this year?
We took that question to Michael Porter, a Geoscience Education Specialist at North Carolina A&T. "There's a lot of cycles in the atmosphere. There's cycles that happen on a yearly basis. There's cycles that happen on an irregular basis, like El Nino, and the combination of these cycles will make any given season a little stronger than another."
We asked if this season's early winter played a part in this wild spring, and Porter said not necessarily.
And if you're thinking the Triad dodged a bullet, you're right.
Porter said the Triad didn't see as many severe storms because we didn't have as much heat on the ground, and because of our terrain.
