Heat, humidity and thunderstorms are all things that make for a typical summer. Yet this summer seems more busy in the SEVERE storm category.

According to the National Weather Service it HAS been busy in comparison. The last two months have had more severe weather than in previous years.

So what's causing it? El Nino. The weather services says that typically following an El Nino weather pattern summers will produce more severe weather.

While there is no break just yet, it will eventually slow down again in the next couple of months.

"Really this has been a milder summer this particular summer than the last couple couple of summers. So I think in most people's minds its been fairly pleasant, obviously the storminess has been very detracting to a lot of folks but temperatures have been much better than in recent years," says Mark EwensNATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE.

As for stormy weather in the winter...well Ewens says we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
