We woke up to a day that turned out slightly better than we anticipated and we were thankful to have our first real chase day of the trip! The parameters were decent: good CAPE, decent moisture, lift but not as much shear.  As we were already in the target area we could have a long […]

Day 4: Tornado at 11.000 ft!

Lightning from the mountain storm that spun the tornado

After the morning’s forecast we had the option of going some 3 hours east to chase really bad storms or going down almost all the way to New Mexico to, most likely, miss some slightly better looking storms. Instead, we went up the mountains again to hike and drive Mount Evens road, the highest located […]

Day 3: Hiking in the Rocky Mountains

Early on this day David made a forecast and we realized that there would be very meager storms at best within a 3 hour drive (i.e. 6 hours in total) so we decided to call it a Down Day and go up hiking in the mountains instead, in Rocky Mountain National Park. There was a […]

There is really not much to say about June 4th, Day 2 on this chase, other than it was a looong day. We got up and into the Stormtrooper at 9 a.m. and finally arrived in Denver at 10.30, some 13.5 hours later! That did include a stop in Wakita, OK, for a visit to […]

I arrived late on June 2nd after a long but pretty decent flight. Well, outside of the fact that I lost my iPhone on the first leg of the flight! It was a matter of many small coincidences as I am usually quite careful when it comes to my iPhone. It really sucks as it […]

StormchasingUSA.com 3.0 – Same, same but different

When I first made StormChasingUSA.com back in 2009, it was not a pretty website but quite useful from the start. It was made in php with a lot of “cut and paste”-coding that made it buggy and without any really useful tools. A couple of years later I made a complete makeover of it, with […]

Chasecation 2017

By StormChasingUSA.com | May 29, 2017 | 0 Comments

June 2nd is finally within reach, the date I will leave to go on this year’s chasecation. I was planning to go in late May as usual but I was a bit too slow in booking my trip so Tornado Alley Chasing ran out of seats for that period – leaving me to chase in […]

Talking about storm chasing on national radio in Sweden

By StormChasingUSA.com | January 24, 2017 | 0 Comments

Yesterday I was a guest at one of the most popular national radio shows in Sweden, “Morgonpasset i P3”. I was invited to talk about storm chasing. I was a bit nervous before but this wasn’t my first time on live radio and not even the first time talking about storm chasing 🙂 I had […]

Weather Nation with another view of our narrow tornado escape in Leoti, KS

By StormChasingUSA.com | June 1, 2016 | 0 Comments

I just found this amazing video that shows fully how close we come to the Leoti, KS, tornado last week. Apparently Weather Nation was filming the tornado from an angle facing us as well, showing even better how close we came to the (small) tornado! Check it out: As previously showed, this is my video […]

Day 9 and forward: Tulsa and some minor Texas storms

By StormChasingUSA.com | June 1, 2016 | 0 Comments

After our little rainbow chase on Day 8 we went back to David’s home in Tulsa and finally had a nice and easy down day. I knew I should not be hoping for down days, especially since the upcoming weather pattern did not seem to promising but still, it was well needed. I spent the […]

My review of Tornadic Expeditions

By StormChasingUSA.com | May 31, 2016 | 0 Comments

I have recently finished my week of chasing with Erik Burns and Tornadic Expeditions, and what a week! We had some something in the vicinity of 20 tornadoes on three different days. I have never experienced a weather setup this great and, as far as I understand, very few has! Obviously, I am very happy […]

Day 8: Rainbow chasing in Oklahoma

By StormChasingUSA.com | May 28, 2016 | 0 Comments

For the first time in ages I woke up after a good nights sleep. I had a large breakfast and brought up my laptop in order to catch up on some work. After such an amazing week I was way behind on photo editing, video editing and normal work so it was great to get […]

Day 7: Moderate Risk Day semi-bust

By StormChasingUSA.com | May 27, 2016 | 0 Comments

I woke up feeling really tired but excited about the day. Almost everything was pointing towards a big day with several big tornadoes. 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 […]

Day 6: Painful bust in Kansas

By StormChasingUSA.com | May 26, 2016 | 0 Comments

Today started as a marginal risk day and I was so satisfied with the amazing day in Dodge City yesterday I did not really care too much what happened. It felt like nothing could go wrong today but I was wrong. Our first plan was to position ourselves in McPherson, KS, but later changed a […]

Day 5: Dodge City, KS. The Perfect Storm.

By StormChasingUSA.com | May 25, 2016 | 0 Comments

As of the morning on Day 5 I had seen 13 tornadoes in total. I was about to double that number today. Day 5 was an epic storm chase day and many seasoned storm chasers have mentioned this was their best day ever. I was fortunate enough to experience the Dodge City-tornado outbreak of 2016. […]
