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.

My name is Christoffer Bj√∂rkwall and storm chasing is my greatest passion in life.¬†I am a Swedish storm chaser¬†specialized in storm chasing tours.
Since 2009 I have chased with 8 different tour companies and thus have a knowledge about¬†the storm chasing tour companies like no other in the world.
I have been featured in¬†national Swedish¬†media such as Sveriges Radio P3 "Morgonpasset", Expressen, Kv√§llsposten, Caf√© Magazine and Nyheter24.se.
I live in Skan√∂r in the southernmost tip of Sweden with my fianc√©e and two kids. We¬†get very few thunderstorms here but I try to chase for water spouts in the summer.
Note: The image is NOT a scene from any of the movies mentioned but rather just some photo editing. Although tornadoes are frequent in movies they are often pictured more as a backdrop to enhance a disaster movie or the likes of it. The storm chasing community has not been spoiled with great movies – […]
As you may be very well aware of, the storm chasing tours have been severely impacted by the Covid-19 outbreak and the subsequent travel bans. Many tour companies cancelled their tours in 2020 completely and those who didn’t only held very few and highly restricted tours. For most, 2020 was a terrible year for chasing […]
There is no clickbait and no surprise here. Covid-19 is putting its ugly wet blanket over this season for me and (almost) all fellow storm chasing europeans and most other non-americans. The borders are still closed and even if they would open up I would assume it would only be for vaccinated people. In Sweden, […]
During my 9 seasons I have collected a lot of amazing storm footage. Photos I have collected and show both here on StormChasingUSA.com as well as on my Instagram account. Although I am happy about all the amazing photos I have taken I am, like many other chasers, never really satisfied with my collection or […]
I have made a sendout to all storm chasing tour companies to ask for an update on whether they run tours in 2020 or not. In general, the ones who do run tours did not run their early tours (April, early May) and had some of their tour guests from those tours being moved to […]
In the advert of the Covid-19 outbreak I was still expecting to chase (albeit with some difficulties) but ever since the US closed the borders for travelers from Europe in March, I have known that the chances for me chasing this year has been slim. The borders were, at first, closed for 30 days but […]
There is not much needed to say about the Corona virus as I am sure you are quite well informed about the health situation. The effects of this pandemic are obviously vast and it affects (most importantly) the health of people, the World economy but also storm chasing. Most chasers are US based and may […]
Who is Gregg Potter? I was born in Cleveland, OH and moved to Castle Rock, CO when I was 6 years old. With storms blowing up along the front range of the Rockies, I got my love for the weather and storms at a young age. I knew I‚Äôd be a Meteorologist by the time […]
Storm Deprivation Syndrome (abbreviated SDS) is a anxiety syndrom that mainly affects storm chasers when there are no storms to chase for an extended period of time – typically in the off-season. Prevalence SDS is very rare in the general population but is greatly prevalent among the demographic group of so called storm chasers – […]
