When the weather gets crazy, we share the tornado memes.
After weeks of zero rain, the weather did a complete 180. Good ol’ Texas went from drought conditions to tornado watches and warnings. Rather than fret the crazy, we are sharing the twister humor.
Funny Tornado Memes
We are on hour 18 of non-stop rain. The water is trying to creep into the house, the clouds are turning black, wind is blowing hard and the severe weather warnings have started.
Do you know what’s funny about tornadoes? Absolutely nothing but these funny tornado memes.
We originally posted these tornado memes in the fall when the weather was mighty weird. Fast forward, we are in the midst of Spring which means tornado season.
Tornado Season Memes
Let’s get ready to rumble, or hopefully not. Here are the tornado season memes for when the weather starts to stir crazy style.
Tornado season here in Texas runs January thru December. Okay, maybe not. The peak “tornado season” for the southern Plains (e.g., Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas) is from May into early June.
On the Gulf coast, it is earlier in the spring. In the northern Plains and upper Midwest (North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota), tornado season is in June or July. (source: NOAA.gov)
When the Next Door app is having a massive debate and the moderators either delete the thread or stop comments all because people are arguing over whether it was high winds or a F1 tornado.

Thank you Twister for making me always look for the flying cows. Did you know that the strongest tornadoes have rotating winds of more than 250 mph?
Tornadoes can be more than one mile wide and stay on the ground for over 50 miles.
Taco Watch Taco Warning
This taco watch taco warning meme describes it best. See when you are on a taco watch – you have the ingredients and a taco is possible.
A taco warning is when the tacos are made and you are having tacos like right now.
How seriously do we take our tacos? See our Taco Tuesday memes.
The same comparison can be made with a cupcake. See, all the stuff is here and the ingredients are just right for a cupcake. But BAM, cupcake warning – you are definitely have cupcakes.
Tornado Warning vs Watch Meme
Knowing the difference between a tornado warning and a tornado watch is critical during twister season.
The official word from Daddy Google is the following. A tornado watch is issued when weather conditions are favorable for the development of tornadoes. A tornado warning is issued when a tornado has been spotted or indicated by weather radar.
Here is the difference between a tornado warning vs watch in a SpongeBob meme:
Tornado Watch Meme
Here is what you should know about a tornado watch.
- A tornado watch means that tornadoes are possible in and near the watch area.
- Watches are issued by the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) for counties where tornadoes may occur.
- The watch area is typically large, covering numerous counties or even states.
- Watches are typically issued hours in advance of a tornado threat.
- When a tornado watch is issued, you should:
- Stay informed about the weather forecast and be prepared to take action if a tornado warning is issued.
- Have a plan for what you will do if a tornado warning is issued for your area.
- Know the safest place to take shelter in your home or workplace.
Tornado Warning Meme
Now comes the seriousness. What does a tornado warning mean?
- A tornado warning means that a tornado has been spotted or indicated by weather radar.
- Warnings are issued by the National Weather Service (NWS) for a specific area.
- Warnings are typically issued for a smaller area than watches.
- Warnings are typically issued minutes before a tornado is expected to touch down.
- When a tornado warning is issued, you should:
- Seek shelter immediately.
- Go to the lowest level of your home or workplace.
- Get under a sturdy piece of furniture, such as a table or desk.
- Cover your head and neck with your arms.
- Stay away from windows.
- Do not go outside. (Ignore above tornado warning meme, it’s sarcasm.)
It is important to remember that a tornado watch does not mean that a tornado will strike. However, it is also important to be prepared for the possibility of a tornado if a watch is issued.
A tornado warning is a more serious alert and means that a tornado has been spotted or is indicated by weather radar. When a tornado warning is issued, you should seek shelter immediately.
Tornado Siren Meme
Tornado sirens mean take immediate cover.
Let me play the sound of my people. Anyone else here in tornado alley have monthly tornado siren tests?
This is great and all, but even though it happens EVERY single first Wednesday of the month, it never fails that the NextDoor app and local Facebook groups are filled with chatter about “what is that siren for?”
Tornado season also means the days of rain. Don’t miss our rain memes.
