Jet Stream leading to uncertain weather in the state for May

BROOKINGS, S.D.(WNAX)- With the jet stream moving the storm track far to the south, it leaves much of the northern plains in the uncertain zone.

South Dakota State Climatologist Laura Edwards says the outlooks don’t give them much direction.

Edwards says May is a big month for spring rains.

Edwards says the last part of the month could see a surge in severe weather.

Edwards says the drought monitor shows some improvement in eastern parts of the state, but still severe conditions in much of the west and north.
