Cool Spring Leads To Slow Start To Tornado Season

CHANHASSEN — Like last year, Minnesota is off to a slow start to the severe weather season. And, it could continue for awhile as predictions come in about cooler than normal weather into June or even July.

Todd Krause is the Warning Coordination Meteorologist for the National Weather Service. He says so far this season, the jet stream has been to our south, trapping storms in the southern U.S.  But, he says as we move into the heart of summer, there is no question the Jet Stream will push northward over Minnesota at times. When it does, that’s when the threat of severe storms increases.

Krause says despite a few small tornadoes in May last year, the severe storms didn’t arrive until June 17th when Wadena and other communities got hit by twisters. He says a few days of warm, humid weather could trigger storms so we need to remain alert.
