Early in the month of May 2013 on May the 3rd, a very vigorous low pressure system dropped down into the Midwest, bring with it all manner of nasty weather! Many of the northern states, including parts of Missouri got the added insult of heavy snow at a time of the year when such nastiness is exceedingly rare!
Then, ever so slowly, that pesky low pressure system has moved off to the east. So slow has been the movement that even now, on May the 6th we are still feeling the effect of a system that is currently parked over the great state of Tennessee. Systems like this are what have made May a wet and cool month!
