Had some fun cloning myself using the iPhone panorama camera mode earlier this year, during a down day at White Sands, NM. Basically, what you do is take a photo yourself in the first shot, go behind the photographer and put yourself in position for the end portion of the panorama sweep. Panocloning!
This really cool video shows how the clouds form around the globe, seen from space, over a 10 year time lapse. Note specifically how the hurricanes shape and clash onto the US east coast.
This blog typically mentions cool things you may experience on a storm chasing trip. Even though may see lenticular clouds (at least on top of quickly developing storms) or maybe arcus clouds you will have to be very lucky to see something like this (Edit: link has been removed as target website is gone). Beautiful!
Have you ever wondered how a tornado would look like from above the cloud? Well, it would look like a typical supercell (i.e. not really like a hurricane with a big hole in the middle). This animated gif shows really weall how it looks like (as a time-lapse) when storms pop-up over a few counties. […]
This video shows golf ball (?) sized hail coming down from the sky during a severe storm. It really shows how intense the hail can be during a storm.
I took this photo outside Canadian, TX, back in 2009 while driving away from a storm that was dying out. This portion of the cloud instantly caught my eye since it was an almost perfect face in the clouds. …and a zoomed in and higher contrast-version of the same photo.

When we woke up on our 7th day (May 7th), we finally had some storms to chase! I don’t really remember the setup of these days but we started chsasing in Kansas and found some really nice storm features of these high-based storms. In the end of the week we turned back down to Texas […]
The six days that followed produced no storms whatsoever in the entire country. We spent those days in south and southeast Texas. We spent some time in the beautiful Big Bend national park and other photogenic places in the region. Brian is a really passionate photographer and knew a lot of good places to take […]
I went with Tempest Tours in 2013 from May 1st to May 10th. I was scheduled to go with Weather Gods first but I had to reschedule very late (read more about why here). During this tour I actually didn’t blog or write a diary so I don’t have any detailed text about my experiences […]
This blog post has, as well as many of my tour reviews, been back-dated to the time of when it occurred. In 2013 I decided quite late (in March) to go storm chasing and decided to go with Weather Gods from May 10th to May 19th. I chose this tour because it seemed like many […]
In May 2013 StormChasingUSA.com, and me, was featured in Focus Magazine in Ukraine with an interview about storm chasing. The interview was over email and the article can only be read in Ukrainian. Through the help of Google translate I could at least read, and understand, some of the article. This was the second time […]
This blog entry was originally written on my personal blog and directed (simplified) to my friends (who don’t know anything about storm chasing). I have translated it as it was and left it with no major editing. This was my second trip and I didn’t know that much about storm chasing at the time. I […]
The first time StormChasingUSA.com was featured in media was in January 2010 when Swedish newspaper Expressen published an article that I wrote about my experience with Cloud 9 tours and storm chasing. The article received quite a lot of attention and was one of the most read articles that day, it ended up on the […]
