This April was really active, but May has been really quiet. And June so far is relatively quiet. Well, we could be in for a nasty surprise later this month or maybe a July-August outbreak. Who knows?Wow, you have to wonder if/when the upper Midwest will see a sequence like 6/16-17/93 again given how quiet the last few Junes (including this one) have been. I would have been 7 at the time and although I don't have specific memories of that event, I'm sure I was glued to TWC listening to the ominous forecasts and we probably got rocked by a decent thunderstorm.
Pilger was really the last June outbreak sequence of note. I busted that day (got to the storm too late, it produced a last-gasp spin up, shriveled and died), around midnight that night a brief but strong (EF2) tornado hit less than a mile from my apartment back in Madison, then the next day I cap busted in Iowa when if I'd just stayed in Nebraska I might have gotten that nearly stationary wedge.
