SIOUX FALLS, SD -
KELOLAND has been stuck in a cool, wet weather pattern for months. Looking at the global pattern, we are still in a La Nina, which means there are also colder than normal temperatures near the equator in the Pacific Ocean.
Looking back, we've entered May with a La Nina pattern eight times. Four of those years, May was cooler than average. The other four were warmer. But June was a different story. Seven out of eight years were cooler than normal. When it comes to moisture, May was dryer than normal six of the eight years. June was split.
Looking at this year's pattern, we may be on the colder side as far as temperatures. Precipitation is a little tougher to pinpoint, but it looks like our wet trend may continue.
