Day 9: Chasing 5 states in one day

By | June 15, 2019 | 0 Comments

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

By | June 8, 2019 | 0 Comments

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 […]

This is equally true for me. Storm chasing really kicked my photography interest off with a bang! My first two chases I had my Canon 450 […]
