No severe weather in June so far - WAOW - Newsline 9, Wausau News, Weather, Sports

No severe weather so far is unusual in Wisconsin

WAUSAU (WAOW)--The month of  June is off to an unusual start in Wisconsin.

"Typically, we see most of our severe weather in June. This year from  the end of May into June we have had few storms and most of those were not severe. Plus, we have had no tornadoes reported," said WAOW Chief Meteorologist Justin Loew.

If the dry air and low humidity continue, it could break a record, he said.

"We haven't seen any tornadoes in Wisconsin. The latest date we have ever gone for that is June 28 so we are getting close to that record," said Loew.

He suspects storm activity will pick up later in the summer.

"The Great Lakes are still pretty cold. This is one of the latest years ever that the ice went out on them and that may lead to more temperature contrasts a little later this summer," Loew said.
