The United States is the world's third-largest country in terms of total land area, behind only Russia and Canada (though China is larger if all outlying US territories are excluded).

With so many distinct territories all within one country, seasonal weather is extremely diverse in the USA. As a result, each faces unique weather threats of differing degrees throughout the year.

Let's look at what to expect from some of the key areas in spring, as well as what we need to be aware of here in Georgia, when two warm and cold air masses meet throughout the country.

The Pacific Northwest is prone to significant rainfall during the spring, which can cause floods and water damage to houses. Snowfall will continue at higher elevations, and the melting and runoff from that will bring new concerns of their own.

The longest winter is in the Upper Midwest and Northeast, with temperatures sticking around for the entire season. Extreme cold and the prospect of snowstorms and blizzards may be expected from Maine to South Dakota throughout late spring or early summer, when temperatures start to rise.

On the other side, residents of the southern West Coast should be wary of intense heat waves and safety concerns, as well as possible tsunamis on Hawaii's South Pacific coast as a result of tectonic activity.

From Iowa to Texas, storms, droughts, and possible blazes will be a worry for the heartland. Wildfires can quickly spread when the wind is strong and the weather is dry. In addition, Tornado Alley lies in this region; it has a high rate of tornadoes.

Extreme weather is also a concern in the Southeast, especially in Georgia, where tornadoes and severe thunderstorms can occur in landlocked states, as well as hazardous rip currents on the coast and hurricanes during the spring. Clouds, thunderstorms, and tornadoes are common in Georgia during the spring and summer. Remnants of tropical storms that have been blowing across the sea may also trigger significant floods.

No matter where you live in the United States, weather is always a major concern. Your state might have different weather than your friend's state, but it is always a good idea to be prepared.

Help is only a phone call away if extreme weather causes you to suffer property damage from water, fire, or other agents. For prompt and professional restoration, contact SERVPRO of NW Dekalb/Dunwoody/Brookhaven.
