SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — It’s been a wild ride so far this year for severe weather across the lower 48. Severe weather reports have been concentrated in the central and southern United States. But, we just entered the time of year when KELOLAND sees its most severe weather.

As we go through this second week of June, it will feel more like summer with highs in the 80s and higher humidity. This helps add energy into the atmosphere and it doesn’t take much to get severe storms to develop.

I looked at the Sioux Falls, Aberdeen, and Rapid City weather services average severe weather reports per month and here’s what I found.

Breaking down these three offices with their average reports for severe weather for May through August shows that June is the month with the highest reports for severe weather with 333 reports. This is closely followed by July with an average of 300. The reports fall off in August and May.

We’re starting this June on the light side with 47 severe reports so far. We’ll add to that number this week, but the third week of June is usually one of the busiest for severe weather. We’ll see if that holds up this year.
