Kelly Serr, warning coordination meteorologist with NWS, helps us prepare to weather whatever pours out of the spring and summer seasons.

Dr. Tyler Ptacek, pain specialist at the Rapid City Medical Center, joins us to preview this week's episode of "On Call with the Prairie Doc®." He discusses chronic pain, including different types and treatment options.
