The year started out active, with a tornado/severe storm risk as well as icy roads in and close to St. Louis. The spring severe weather season started out been busy, but the traditional peak of the season was anomalously quiet in the Great Plains and Midwest. Activity picked up after the second half of June, however, with some memorable storms.
