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.

StormChasingUSA.com will help you towards an experience of a lifetime, that will become truly addicting. StormChasingUSA.com is not a Tour company, we just provide the information about the tour companies and their tours.

Chase season 2019 is now booked

By StormChasingUSA.com | October 1, 2018

Last year, in November, my life changed forever when I got my son Timo. He is currently 10 months old and, actually, loves to watch storms with me. He was with me during the “tornado outbreak” in Sweden in August when a shelf cloud (with a shear vortex) came in over our summer house. Despite […]

“Tornado outbreak” in Sweden

By StormChasingUSA.com | August 23, 2018

Sweden (where I live) is not very prone to have tornadoes. At all. We never ever have big ones and most tornadoes, if they appear, are usually water spouts coming ashore. In mid August we had a bit of a “tornado outbreak” here in the south of Sweden. Now, this is a tornado outbreak in […]

Counting tornadoes – which do you count (and not)?

By StormChasingUSA.com | July 2, 2018

Earlier this year I started a thread on StormTrack about how to count tornadoes seen. I have a spreadsheet on my computer where I list the tornadoes I have seen, for my own personal sake and nothing else. I usually don’t post or brag about how many tornadoes I have seen but I do find […]

How do you determine the skill of a storm chaser?

By StormChasingUSA.com | June 30, 2018

As I often go with storm chasing tours I am often left with trying to determine the skill of a certain tour guide. That goes as well when I read reviews visitors write on this website. How do you know if a certain storm chaser, like your future tour guide, is skilled or not? I assume […]

Chasing with Weather Adventures and Blake Knapp – my review

By StormChasingUSA.com | June 29, 2018

I had the pleasure of chasing with Weather Adventures and Blake Knapp this season, right after my chase with Silver Lining Tours. It was interesting to chase with two very different tour companies in the same season. I took the 10 day tour with Weather Adventures during this, overall, bad chase season. Out of the 10 […]

My impression of storm chasing with Silver Lining Tours

By StormChasingUSA.com | June 28, 2018

This season I got to chase with two different tour companies back-to-back: Silver Lining Tours and then Weather Adventures. My tour with Silver Lining Tours was a 6 day tour that started on May 26th. The weather on our tour played along quite well (with a few disappointing busts) and we were able to chase […]

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 […]
