Storm chasing tours are a great way of learning how to forecast and chase storms. Many storm chasing tours have a crash course in forecasting and storm chasing in the evening of arrival as well as morning briefings when they go through the forecast in order to show why a certain target is selected and what you can possibly expect from that day. The amount of time spent on this morning briefing range from 2 minutes to 45 minutes. This highly depends on the tour company, how complex the forecast is, the size of the group and the amount of time you have in the morning.
Most, if not all, tour guides are also happy to explain what is going on while you are actively chasing or standing by a storm. As such, you will learn a whole lot by just going on a normal storm chasing tour if you are interested.
If you want to learn even more, especially if it is not your first tour, you have a few options in order to learn even more and really dig deep into forecasting. A few tour companies offer “Learning Tours” which are specialized in order for you to understand and learn how to forecast storms yourself and your involvement in the forecasting process is much more thorough.
