Spring 2021 has brought in Europe already 63 tornadoes, 27% of them in last 5 days (+MAP)

From 1. March 2021 to 16. May 2021, only 63 tornado reports on ESWD have appeared, therefore, last 5 days, 27% of all Spring 2021 tornadoes in Europe have occurred in 5 days from all 76 spring days so far. It is around 7-times higher frequency, such as during rest of the period.

The most of tornadoes appeared in Mediterranean, some in lowlands from France to Poland, but very limited cases were reported from British Islands and Scandinavia during Spring 2021.

Main tornado season in Europe is only beginning - the most tornadoes is reported every year in summer and early autumn - mainly in northern latitudes, while Mediterranean should be significantly affected from spring into autumn.

The most violent European tornado, with EF5 strength, has according to Severe Weather Europe occurred in 1930 in northeastern Italy /The most violent tornado in Europe on record: July 24, 1930 Montello, northeastern Italy F5 tornado » Severe Weather Europe (severe-weather.eu)/.
