Day 3: Amazing storm structure and four tornadoes

Day 3 was our best hope for a good chase day before a crashing cold front would remove all the moisture from the Plains and cause a couple of down days. The setup was much better than Day 2 with great moisture (60+), good helicity, great instability (2.000-3.000 CAPE in some places) but there were...

Day 1 & 2: Surprisingly good storm in Colorado

After a really active weather pattern we were getting into a new pattern with much more iffy setups. As of the start we used Day 1 to drive from Tulsa to Colby, KS, to get in position for what could be a marginal day on Day 2 (June 7th) and a better day on Day...

Chase season 2019 starts today

I am finally here and it feels absolutely awesome to have 10 days of storm chasing to look forward to! My flight over was super convenient and I was not bored for a second even though it was quite a long flight. David picked me up at the airport yesterday evening and I crashed straight...

Pre-chasecation anxiety

In one week I am flying out of Copenhagen to Tulsa to start my much longed for chasecation. As mentioned, I will be chasing with David Williams and his Tornado Alley Chasing together with my fellow Swede Pär/Alex and a czech woman named Iva. As of mid May the Plains have been very active and...

Chase season 2019 is now booked

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...

My summary of the storm chasing season 2017

I am currently sitting at the airport in Dallas on my way home to Sweden, trying to sum up the season of 2017 for myself. For many this was the worst season for a long time and it really started off bad for us, with the ridge sitting all over the mid west for the...

Day 15: Incredible storm structure over Greensburg, KS

Today was our “Well, we can chase if there are any storms around Tulsa”-day, since we were all leaving around noon the day after. Although there was a chance for some sort of thunderstorms in Tulsa, the environment was best in north-east Kansas. We could not, however, risk being so far away from Tulsa so...

Day 14: Very strong winds at night and almost the perfect tornado

We had a vote at lunch about whether we should go home to Tulsa or chase up north. Since we were driving on our spare tire and the setup did not look to good my vote was on going home. Akos, the constantly positive Hungarian, convinced us on chasing so we went up to chase...

Day 13: Gustnado outside Hays, KS

I woke up with a nice, peaceful feeling from the day before. Storm chasing is at its best when you can stand and watch a slow moving storm and take good time to take photos, enjoy and plan ahead. I really loved that! That nice, peaceful feeling came to an abrupt halt when we realized...

Day 12: Suprise sunset supercells in Wichita

As today was a very marginal day we chose to really sleep in and catch up on some work. We didn’t leave Lincoln, NE, until after a nice lunch at Ihop and headed east towards Topeka, KS, to play the dryline again. The dewpoints and temperatures were super high so it was almost painful to...
