After Stormy Spring, Average Summer Weather Predicted

by Stu Johnson, Kentucky Public RadioSevere weather has been especially heavy this spring in Kentucky.  However, if trends hold true, University of Kentucky agriculture meteorologist Tom Priddy predicts summer weather will be comparable to past years.Priddy says the storms of the last few weeks were likely caused by La Niña, which is now waning and could be unlikely to significantly affect weather patterns in the next few months.“While we’re not looking for that extreme to go into a very dry pattern again.  We would anticipate to go into a more normal weather pattern as we move into the summer time.”The past few summers have been drier than usual, but Priddy says Kentucky might see normal rainfall this year.
