Severe Weather Numbers Down

July 28, 2012, 10:04 PM by Scot Mundt

Severe Weather Numbers Down

The hot and dry weather this summer has taken a toll on the land in KELOLAND.  From dried up crops, to fires in the west, many are in search of much needed rain.

Throughout July 2011, KELOLAND averaged just under 850 severe weather reports.  The severe weather reports include everything from tornadoes to thunderstorm winds of at least 57 miles per hour to hail an inch in diameter. 

This year the reports are at about half that average, with an estimation of 450 severe weather reports.

Severe weather reports usually decrease by about a third from July to August and by about 70 percent from August to September, so we're getting away from severe weather chances with each passing day.

Of course, the lack of rain has kept the severe weather low, but I think some people would take the chance for severe weather if it meant rain.
