Storm chasing (also referred to as tornado chasing tours, tornado safaris or storm safaris) with organized tours is a rapidly growing tourism industry where experienced storm chasers guide adventurers and tourists to amazing severe weather. The hunt for tornadoes, super cells, hail, lightning etc goes all over the midwestern states of USA. The tours are usually between 5-10 days in order to maximize your chances of seeing Mother Nature in her worst mood.

Storm Chasing usually takes place in the spring, around May-June, but you can go chasing in April and July as well. The tour could take you from the Rocky Mountains in the West to the East coast and from the Mexican border in the South up to the Canadian border in the North. The nature of weather makes it impossible to know where you will be any given day.

What all storm chasing tour companies should consider doing

By StormChasingUSA.com | June 19, 2018

I am quite confident there is no one in the world who have been chasing with more storm chasing tour companies than I. Up to this date I have chased with 8 different tour companies: Cloud 9, PDS Storm Tours (no longer active), Tempest Tours, Extreme Chase Tours, Tornadic Expeditions, Tornado Alley Chasing, Silver Lining […]

Chase season 2018

By StormChasingUSA.com | June 19, 2018

June 17th was not really a chase day as we had to drive all the way back to Denver. Eastern Colorado did however seem to be some promising for storms and SPC put a 2% on it. Later on they moved that towards southern Kansas and after some actual forecasting we never chased it as […]

Day 16 (June 11th) – Messy storms by the NE/IO border

By StormChasingUSA.com | June 12, 2018

Yesterday was supposed to be the Big Day of this tour, i.e. the one with the best parameters, and it did not result in any tornado. After two weeks of disappointments and storms that starts to die or congeal after 1-2 hours, allowing for very little actual storm watching, I have to confess I was […]

Day 15 (June 10th) – Rotating wall cloud sniffing the ground in South Dakota

By StormChasingUSA.com | June 11, 2018

This was the big day of the tour. Finally, there was a trough coming in to provide some much needed upper air support, and we were to be positioned in South Dakota. The 5% tornado risk of the day pretty much outlined one of my favorite places in the USA in terms of natural beauty: […]

Day 14 (June 9th) – Storms around Devils Tower, WY

By StormChasingUSA.com | June 10, 2018

Today was supposed to be a down day/travel day to put ourselves into position for Sunday, which seems to be the most promising day since I started chasing with Weather Adventures. There was a setup in Minnesota/Iowa but it was too far away and iffy. There was however a marginal setup in the northern direction […]

Day 13 (June 8th) – Nice structured supercell in Rapid City

By StormChasingUSA.com | June 9, 2018

Today was the best chase day since I started chasing with Weather Adventures. The setup was quite obvious in SW South Dakota with good instability and moisture but only a small pocket of shear, SPC had a super small 5% risk over the area. We drove from our hotel in Spearman, SD, to Rapid City […]

Day 12 (June 7th) – Another day in 2018

By StormChasingUSA.com | June 8, 2018

It has now been 10 days since I saw my last tornado on this chasecation. Although that was an all time top-5 chase day for me, the lack of good storms are starting to get frustrating. I know I share this feeling with everyone chasing, except maybe for the ones who saw the Laramie, WY, […]

Day 11 (June 6th) – Slow day in Nebraska

By StormChasingUSA.com | June 7, 2018

Today was a day with slim chances of getting something good. SPC had put a slight risk (and 2% tornado risk) over western Nebraska, parts of Colorado and Wyoming. We chose to go to western Nebraska. What happened today was not so much what happened in Nebraska, where we went, but what happened in Wyoming. […]

Day 10 (June 5th) – Chasing among spectacular landscapes in WY/SD

By StormChasingUSA.com | June 6, 2018

This was probably one of the most relaxing and, in terms of surroundings, beautiful day ever. We started at our hotel in Denver and went up north towards Montana. We got almost to the border when a storm fired over Montana. We followed it east from the other side of the state border, in Wyoming, […]
