It’s been a slow time for tornadoes across the country so far in 2015. As of March 23, there have been no tornado warnings issued in Arkansas. Pulaski County has not had a March tornado since 1997, according to the National Weather Service.
It’s not an unusual trend for the first one-fourth of the year, as there has only been one January tornado and five February tornadoes since 2000 in Pulaski County, according to the National Weather Service.
“There will be a chance of watches and warnings for parts of Arkansas in the next few days,” says Patrick Marsh, meteorologist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma. “There should not be a major outbreak, but watches and warnings will certainly be a possibility.”
