There is a reason for the string of tornadoes recently in Oklahoma.
National Weather Service Tulsa office meteorologist Brad McGavock tells us that the atmosphere has been ripe for the tornadoes to form.
"All the ingredients that are needed for tornadoes have been in place so once storms develop they've been able to become tornadic at times."
McGavock says it's just part of the cycle of the weather that we have to go through for a while.
"You get in the month of May and that's typically when we have our strongest storms and once you have the strongest storms you have the potential for tornadoes."
McGavock says before you know it, the rain will stop and it will get really hot and end the severe tornadic weather cycle.
