Grand Forks, ND — As we wrap up Severe Weather Awareness Week and inch closer to the prime severe weather months of June, July, and August, you may be wondering if this summer is going to quiet one or a bumpy one? How the rest of this spring plays out may be factor in determining that, according to Greg Gust of the National Weather Service.

Gust adds that a cold spring typically means less severe weather.

But since we have had a warmer spring and are getting more precipitation, Gust expects an average severe weather season.

According to the Minnesota DNR, an average of 28 tornadoes touch down in the state of Minnesota each year.
