National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce

The severe weather season typically peaks in April and May across the Bluegrass State.  However, 2016 has seen relatively little severe weather.  In fact, the National Weather Service offices that serve Kentucky have only issued 6 tornado warnings and 31 severe thunderstorm warnings in the state.  The 37 total warnings is the fewest number of warnings issued through April 24th of any calendar year since 1996!
