Storm chasing in Texas

Texas is the state that gets the most tornadoes on average in the USA. This is mainly because it is the largest state in Tornado Alley but Texas IS a state that get a lot of tornadoes and especially in the Texas Panhandle area and south of the Panhandle. Storms and tornadoes in Texas are the most common in early Spring (April and early May) so if you want to chase in Texas you should plan to chase around this time.

If you chase in Texas you will most likely chase, as mentioned, in the Panhandle area and south of the Panhandle. Not only is the Texas panhandle a hotspot for tornadoes is also offers a great flat chase country. Storms and tornadoes do happen in other parts as well of course, especially in the area north of Dallas, but some parts of the State are often left out by chasers because of the chase terrain being to difficult to chase in.
