FBetween May 27 and June 1, 2024, the local weather forecast offices of the National Weather Service confirmed 598 tornadoes in the United States, and Environment Canada confirmed another 14 in Ontario, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. The outbreak began as clusters of thunderstorms developed in the northwestern United States and tracked southeast from Idaho on May 27. 33 tornadoes were confirmed on May 27, including an EF4 which impacted southeastern Wyoming, and an EF3 that broke the record for the fastest forward speed of any significant tornado in recorded history. More significant severe weather occurred on May 28 following a lapse in activity during the morning and into the afternoon as rain showers occurred across the northern-Central United States; however, by the mid-afternoon, supercells developed in the states of Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, and South Dakota. 71 tornadoes touched down in the late afternoon and evening of May 28, including an EF5 which impacted the town of Marshall, Minnesota, causing 46 fatalities. Severe weather continued almost uninterrupted throughout the 24-hour period of May 29, with 127 tornadoes touching down across eight states, primarily in Nebraska, Missouri, and western Iowa; including two rated EF5 and eight rated EF4. 90 fatalities occurred on May 29, making it the second-deadliest day of the outbreak. Tornadic activity was generally calmer on May 30; although 89 tornadoes were still confirmed across five states; one EF5-rated tornado was responsible for 26 fatalities in Liberal, Kansas. May 31 proved to be the most active day of the outbreak by a significant margin; like May 29, tornadic activity was almost continuous across the 24-hour period; generally, it was at its most significant in western Kansas and central-western Oklahoma. 262 tornadoes were confirmed on May 31; four of which were rated EF5. The system began to disperse in the early morning of June 1, although 30 tornadoes still occurred in the states of Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina; two of which were rated EF3.
