Showers and Storms

USA Storm Chase 2016

After always wanting to storm chase in the USA, I finally bit the bullet and booked a 10-day storm chasing tour with the Netweather team for the end of May/beginning of June. They run 4 tours every year in Tornado Alley, so I picked Tour 3 as I wanted to see some nice storm structure. The storms tend to have better visibility as the season wears on, with some LP (low precipitation) supercells likely. Unfortunately we didn't get to see a tornado, despite the success of the previous tour (14 tornadoes I believe!). I still saw amazing storms, including supercells, had an amazing roadtrip across 9 states, and met some great people. I'll definitely be back!
