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.

Last year I finally came to print my first storm photo. It was my shot of the first tornado on the Dodge City, 2016, outbreak. It was one of my most significant photos as it was my best chase day, one of my best photos and it also included a few storm chasers in the […]
It is difficult not to have a double-sided attitude towards social media nowadays. At its best, it is a fun and excellent source of information, the perfect way to quickly get crucial information, and to keep in touch with friends, acquaintances and like-minded all over the world. At its worst, social media can be used to easily spread […]
I live very close to the Falsterbo Horse Show which is an annual and very popular horse event in Sweden. It is also a good time to get the heck out of Falsterbo, rent out the house and go visit friends around the country, which is exactly what I did with my family. I was happy […]
My flight was not until later in the afternoon so we had a slow morning and as the other guys went for lunch I got a ride to the airport. I enjoyed the time at the airport editing photos while waiting for my flight. My first flight was through Dallas, which actually had a 5% […]
I had been quite stressed about how to get back to Tulsa as the other would keep on chasing and I had booked a rental car in Amarillo just in case. During the morning forecast however we realized we had the option to, once again, chase high-based storms in the Texas panhandle or go for […]
The moisture had returned to our target area but we were waiting for a weak trough to eject into our target area to enhance 500mb winds etc and strengthen any storm that would exist in our target area – but it really hadn’t passed over the mountains yet, so no help from there. Thus, when […]
We slept in Raton, NM, which was pretty much our target area for the day to come as well. We knew the storms would fire off the mountains and take their sweet time to get to out on the front range where the severe storm potential was better – and they sure did. We chased […]
Day 6 never became a chase day so I spent all day at the hotel catching up on work. Our Day 7 (Wednesday) target was initially SW Texas but the forecast indicated that there would be no storms so we decided to head up Pikes Peak, outside of Colorado Springs to do some more mountain […]
We knew our Day 3 was a lucky day and also the last day of severe storms (we could reach) for several days. On Day 4 we had to go to Denver to leave Alex’ rental car as well as fix our own so we left Burlington for Denver and went straight up towards Rocky […]
