Day 4: So close!

Day 4 was supposed to be our “Big Day”, it had been forecasted as such since Day 1, not only by our tour guides but by SPC and most in the storm chaser community. The night before SPC put a 5% tornado risk in southwestern Oklahoma and parts of Texas. Our tour guides did however...

Day 3: Possible landspout tornado outside Ava, OK

Today was the first day with some potential of actually seeing a supercell. The models were showing some support for this in the OK panhandle so we moved north. The storms were coming in slooowly from New Mexico and we found some beautiful piece of completely flat land to watch the high based storms coming...

Day 2: Late thunderstorm in Amarillo

Day 2 was supposedly a chase day, even though it was very marginal. There was riska area over parts of west Texas up to Amarillo and the tour guides chose to stay around for the northern target, which meant we would stay put in Amarillo. I had been feeling a bit sick so I took...

First storm chasing in 4 years

Finally coming back

2019 was the last time I went chasing storms and, man, have I been missing it – but now I am finally coming back! The reason for not going in 2020 and 2021 is obvious but this year the timing just wasn’t good. For 11 years, I worked full-time with my own business and had...

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...

2020 season cancelled

My storm chasing vacation of 2020 is cancelled – and it is painful

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...

corona virus storm chasing

How will the Corona virus (COVID-19) affect the storm chasing tours in 2020?

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...

Chasing with Extreme Tornado Tours in 2020

I am very happy right now. I have just finalized my registration and bought a plane ticket to OKC in order to chase with Extreme Tornado Tours this season. For a long while it seemed like it would not be possible as I have a two year old son and a 3 month old daughter...
