Tour operator: COD Storm Chasing

Description: Looking for a storm chasing tour where you'll get to sharpen your forecasting skills and understanding of severe weather instead of just being along for the ride? Since 1989 the College of DuPage has been helping weather enthusiasts learn about storms and tornadoes on unique storm chasing trips where participants will get a hands on experience unlike any other tour. Chase days will start off with learning and practicing hand analysis, a critical skill used at the Storm Prediction Center that helps forecasters find the best severe weather setups. Additionally, tours are led by Meteorology Professors that will teach a wide range of topics ranging from storm spotting to how the forecast models we use every day actually work. When possible, participants will even have the opportunity to assist in mobile balloon launches to gain critical weather data during severe weather events. Our goal is not just finding the best storms and photo opportunities for the group, but it is also to help each participant gain a greater understanding of the power of our atmosphere in a safe and unrivaled hands on experience.

Usp: The major difference is we can offer you the same experience as a storm chasing tour group for a lot less money! A storm chasing tour company going out for a similar length of time will typically charge between $2500 and $3500. In addition, because we are educators and you are obtaining college credit, everyone participating on our trips can expect to learn about thunderstorms, tornadoes and storm chasing. Finally, we have been taking students out storm chasing since 1989, so we offer you more experience than any of the major storm chasing tour operators that we are aware of.
