Spring Storm Season May Start Slow, Become More Active Late

National Weather Service LogoIn Kansas, spring means storm season; and when April rolls around each year, folks begin wondering how many severe weather events will occur this season.

National Weather Service of Wichita Meteorologist Brad Ketcham says it's very difficult to predict the length and severity of a coming storm season, but he and his colleagues at the NWS forecast this year to start slow, but possibly pick up in a month or two.

Regardless though, Ketcham reminds folks to stay on guard at all times throughout the spring season, because you never know when a severe weather event may strike.

He says spring storms are dangerous because they are extremely unpredictable.

Along with tornadoes, spring storms in Kansas can also produce strong winds, lightning, hail and the deadliest weather event, flooding.
