Why are tornadoes rare in California?



  1. 0 Votes

    Occurrences of tornadoes in the state of California have averaged six per year since 1950, and the tornadoes California does receive are on the weaker end of the Fujita Scale. Most of the tornadoes that do occur strike in the winter time. Tornadoes are essentially caused by a collision of warm air with cold air, and are triggered by a thunderstorm or supercell or cyclone. Air mass migrates from the Pacific Ocean to the coastal land of California; California is not typically subject to blizzards or extreme temperatures.
