It has been a stormy week for some in KELOLAND. Hail and strong winds have been reported and it looks like more severe weather is in the forecast this weekend.
It comes as no surprise since it is severe weather season. In fact, as we turn the page into the second half of June, we are heading into our peak severe weather season.
Climatology speaking, severe weather season begins to creep into KELOLAND via the southeast corner during the second week of April.
Which may be hard to swallow considering April 2018 was a snowy month.
From April to June, severe weather season ramps up and peaks from around June 17 to July 1. Then the weather begins to calm down.
Severe weather season officially comes to an end near the end of September.
So from July to September the severe weather will be winding down but that doesn’t mean you can go into autopilot. Keep your StormTracker apps and weather radios nearby to keep you informed of severe weather in your area.
