Did you know? The United States is the world capital of tornadoes. The worst tornadoes form from super cell thunderstorms when warm, moist air is trapped underneath cool, dry air and when high altitude winds high up travel in different directions than those at ground level. This setup is most common over the central United States in spring when warm Gulf air meets cold Arctic air and the jet stream dips back down,

What can happen in these storms is that rising warm air hits that change in wind direction and begins to rotate like a pinwheel. The heat continues to build underneath the pinwheel until it punches through this "cap" and turns the pinwheel on its side, creating a mass of rotating clouds called a mesocyclone that can spawn a tornado. This setup is most common over Tornado Alley

Tornado season can't reliably be forecasted.

There's no forecast method for the whole of tornado season. Large-scale atmospheric patterns, such as the El Nino-La Nina can affect how a tornado season plays out but it is not predictable. Tornados occur all year round. You need to be prepared.
