Interesting 30 year U.S. stats vs; 57 year OK stats and I understand what you mean about the geographical boundaries. Long track tornadoes tend to get counted across several states. The two most disastrous tornado outbreaks in US history were long track I believe and both occurred in early April. So don't forget to stock your storm cellar.

Statistically, over the past 57 years, the Oklahoma tornado season is spread mostly over a three month period, peaking in May, with April being the SECOND most dangerous month, followed by June. The National Weather Service statistics for Oklahoma tornadoes show that during the 57 years from 1950 through 2006, Oklahoma had 1132 tornadoes in May, 605 tornadoes in April, and 474 tornadoes in June. So it is not unusual…
