My impression of storm chasing with Silver Lining Tours

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...

Chase season 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 6 (June 1st) – Bust day in Nebraska but with beautiful mammatus

When Roger Hill told us about the parameters of our last day he had a hard time hiding his excitement. The setup was just magnificent for a big event! The morning of our chase day I had a beautiful walk by the South Platte river (North Platte, Nebraska) with intense southern winds and I was...

Day 5 (May 31st) – Just traveling to North Platte, NE

For the second night this tour we stayed in Heritage Inn in Garden City, KS, which is a great hotel that also have quite an impressive water park (!). Last time we never had time to visit but today was just going to be a travel day as the storms were either in Montana/North Dakota...

Day 4 (May 30th) – Tri-state panhandle chasing

Compared to Day 3, this was a day of quite low expectations. Our plan was to go to the Mesas around NE New Mexico, SE Colorado and OK panhandle to possibly watch some nice structured LP supercells. In the morning, the parameters actually changed for the better. We had even better shear than yesterday and...

Day 3 (May 29th) – Monster supercell in Oklahoma

Today was the with the most promising parameters with very good CAPE, great shear and good moisture as well. The bullseye target that almost every storm chaser went to was western Oklahoma. I was very eager to see my first Oklahoma tornado (33 tornadoes but 0 in Oklahoma) and it really felt like we would...

Day 2 (May 28th) – Fantastic day with 5 tornadoes in Colorado

This was the typical Day Before the Big Day with a setup that was better than the previous day. Roger’s bet was on eastern Colorado but our major concern was if the thick stratus would erode enough to create convection and instability. I was sitting in Roger’s van today and was able to hear a...

Day 1 (May 27th) – One of two targets

As I mentioned yesterday, I had no clue of how the weather would be this week but was happily surprised during the morning briefing, and while talking to Roger Hill this morning, that the weather is looking pretty good. In terms of SPC today was a 2% day covering SE Wyoming, NE Colorado and parts...

Storm chasing season 2018 begins…

It has been quite a busy May for me with an amazing family trip to Italy leaving me only with three days to re-pack and get ready for my 2018 chasecation. My plan was to dig a lot deeper into forecasting this season and I did read the Tim Vasquez “Storm forecasting”-book but not more...

Chasecation 2018 is planned and booked

I have been chasing six seasons in a row and it has always felt like “This season is the last one” for many reasons. Chasing in the USA while being based in Sweden is expensive and slightly complicated. In november last year my life changed forever when me, and my beloved Charlotte, got a son!...
