|Much of the country had cooler than normal May weather|
|Drought monitor - released Thursday, June 1|
Our weather pattern is showing signs of summer. How do we know? Just look where the main jet stream winds are now. All the way up along the US/Canadian border, so without the strong winds aloft around Kansas, our chances for severe storms are somewhat diminished.
I don't think severe weather season is completely over yet, but we are passed the peak. In another week, a storm system will be racing across the northern Plains, which may help to get some organized storms going once again.
And on a side note here - it's the time of the year where you just might see a 7 day forecast that has rain on it nearly EVERY day. When you see that, just know it's a complicated forecast. But rather than put a rain icon on each day of the 7 day, we will try to pick out the best chances and leave the others off. Summertime storms can pop up just about anywhere, which makes forecasting them quite a challenge. But we try to avoid having a 7 day forecast that has rain on it every day.
