Virginia, United States of America (37.12322 -78.49277)
Virginia has an annual average of 35–45 days of thunderstorm activity, particularly in the western part of the commonwealth, and an average annual precipitation of 43.32 inches (110 cm). Cold air masses arriving over the mountains in winter can lead to significant snowfalls, such as the Blizzard of 1996 and winter storms of 2009–2010. The interaction of these elements with the commonwealth's topography creates distinct microclimates in the Shenandoah Valley, the mountainous southwest, and the coastal plains. Virginia averages seven tornadoes annually, most F2 or lower on the Fujita scale.
