Missed out on a tornado 30 minutes from where I live!

In Sweden it is really rare to see a tornado for many reasons. First of all, we hardly get any. Secondly, if there are any tornadoes they are very small and do not last long so if you don’t look at the right place at the right time, you miss it. It is also very...

Day 9: Cap bust in Wyoming

Today’s main target was really Minnesota, although it looked like squall lines and night time chasing. Fortunately, in the morning it turned out SE Wyoming would actually have a chance to produce severe weather. SPC even put a 2% tornado risk in the area where were more or less just prepared to have a down...

Day 7: Moderate Risk Day semi-bust

The SPC was predicting an 80% chance of tornadoes and 60% chance of strong tornadoes rated EF2 or higher. The area we targeted had a 15% hatched risk which is the highest...

I have translated it as it was and left it with no major editing. This was my second trip and I didn’t know that much about storm chasing at the time. I...

Day 10 – Broken expectations

Today was the most promising day of the year according to the forecast. I tried not to get my expectations up too much but it was of course difficult. Especially, when the day begins with the first storm coming in over us when we are driving already at 11:30 a.m. A lightning bangs down about...

Day 7 – Bust day

The amazing day yesterday ended in a really nice hotel, simply because we could not find anything else. Not a problem to me, since lodging is included in this trip! This weekend is expected to be really great and it apparently started of really well. Saturday, however, was a “bust day”. This means, you go...
