You again narrow down the sample size to US landfall tornadoes. The smaller the sample, the larger the variance in an already very highly variating set.

We do have increasingly melting glaciers. Rising CO2 content in the atmosphere. Rising methane content. Rising ocean temperatures. Rising sea levels. Climate change is happening, and if you find one localised set of data that does not align that does not change the evidence.

If this was a crime scene we'd have the victim, the bullet that killed him, the gun, the DNA of the suspect on the gun, witness reports and a lamp post.
Maybe the lamp post does not prove the crime happened, but the other evidence does.
You sound like an attorney. Never admit no matter the evidence.
True! Some of the oceanographic data necessary for more accurate modelling,won't even be available until 2041.And that's contingent upon Congress not messing with funding.
