We hear a lot of bad news about climate change, and most of it is but some research shows that we may be seeing fewer tornadoes in 'traditional Tornado Alley.' 

Minnesota sits on the northern edge of Tornado Alley and from Minnesota south to Oklahoma and Texas.

We've actually seen a slight decrease in tornadoes as temperatures have warmed, but Tornado Alley also seems to be shifting east. 

Areas east of the Mississippi have seen a slight increase in tornadoes.

In the largest tornado outbreaks the number of tornadoes has almost doubled, so it's really mixed news. 

In the Midwest, we've also seen a measurable increase in extreme precipitation events (heavier snows, downpours, etc.).
