Alabama still tops the list with NOAA 22 reported tornadoes? It should be noted that NOAA has not updated its website for close to a month.

To maintain the integrity of the question and so you wont not have to go back and change the outcome, it might be best to wait until it becomes official.

Perhaps they update on the 1st.

On another point to clarify, if you go to the below link near the top you will see a link “< 150827 Reports”. If you click on it you can go back day by day and see the tornado activity for the month of August. I did it and what it shows is an additional 3 tornados for Alabama and NONE for Arkansas or LA.

Why do you think they’ll update the site tomorrow rather than on September 1? Do they always do every fourth Friday?

I am not sure if NOAA has a set date to update its website. I normally try to use the last Friday of the month for most of my markets.

Click on possible answers in the right column to hide/show them on the graph. You can also hover over any line to see current value at that time. Graphs will begin to show data one hour after the question has been open. The Historical Trend chart does not display all prices ever reached since it is only updated at discrete time intervals, (hourly/daily/weekly, depending on the date range).
