The Wildest Weather Seasons for Texas Insurance Adjusters

AdobeStock_216140724-1024x370.jpeg

Texas is famous for its ever-changing weather. If you don’t like the weather in Texas, they say, just wait a few minutes and it will change. What never seems to change is the amount of severe weather Texans experience every year. 

As an insurance adjuster, you’ll need to be familiar with the weather patterns in Texas to prepare for the surge in business you will experience during severe weather seasons. You will learn how to navigate the busier seasons, and everything else you need to know about insurance adjusting, by enrolling in 2021’s online training course. Our detailed curriculum was created by adjusters, for adjusters.

Let’s take a look at the seasons of severe weather you will face as a Texas insurance adjuster.

Hail Season

When moisture from the Gulf of Mexico mixes with dry air from the west, powerful thunderstorms can be formed. That puts Texas at a higher risk for hail than any other state – especially North Texas, where cooler temperatures and cold fronts can cause hail to form. Though hail damage can occur at any time of the year, the worst hail damage in Texas typically happens between March and May.

Since 2016, Texas has endured about $1 billion in property damage annually from hail. The Insurance Council of Texas reports that in 2018, Dallas, Tarrant and Denton counties had 20,000 affected structures and 25,000 hail-damaged vehicles. That’s a lot of work for an insurance adjuster, so make sure to prepare your schedule for the flood of hail damage claims you will face in the springtime.

Speaking of floods…

Flood Season

Texas has a high water table and clay-heavy soil that takes a while to absorb water. It also has a long coastline that allows massive storms to pass from ocean to land along the state’s southeastern edge. These factors contribute to the high numbers of flash floods each year in Texas.

Flash floods caused by tropical storms, overflowing rivers and broken levees are the most common causes of flood damage in Texas. In 2017, Hurricane Harvey displaced 39,000 families due to flooding and caused $125 billion in damage. The Austin PD says that April and May are the wettest months in Texas, so you’ll definitely want to anticipate a lot of calls during those two months.

Tornado Season

The most dreaded severe weather events in Texas have to be tornadoes. They are violent, unpredictable, and capable of leaving a trail of devastation in their wake. Texas lies at the southern tip of the nation’s volatile weather zone known as Tornado Alley.

Most of the tornadoes in Texas form in March, April or May, when thunderstorms are at their peak. These roving funnels can cause wind damage to roofs and other property, hail damage, flooding, and physical damage from flying debris. AccuWeather predicts 1,075 tornadoes in Texas in 2019, with 525 of them occurring between March and May.
