Some of Minnesota’s most memorable severe weather events have occurred in June, but most of the state is experiencing a dearth of heavy thunderstorms this month.

On this week's episode of the Way Over Our Heads podcast, climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld and Jim du Bois discuss the relatively storm-free late spring and early summer and the prospects for a hotter, more humid and potentially stormier pattern in the days to come.
