1948: The first successful tornado forecast predicts that a tornado will strike Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma. Meteorologists at the base noticed similarities between the weather conditions of that day and March 20, when the base had been struck by another tornado, and issued the forecast, which was verified when a tornado struck the base that evening.
