NWS discuss the lack of severe weather that took place in the spring

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.(WNAX)- May and June are considered the peak of severe weather season across much of the northern plains.

Peter Rogers, warning coordination meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, says there was a noted lack of severe weather.

Rogers says the lack of severe weather is linked to ongoing drought conditions.

Rogers says they don’t see much that will move the stalled pattern.

Rogers says severe weather is always possible until the snow flies in late fall and early winter.
