I had a strange brain storm the other day, but I have no idea where to start looking for the data.

Is there any correlation at all whatsoever in the temps and dewpoints on days that produced F-4/EF-4 & F-5/EF-5 tornadoes? (i.e. Greensburg, Wichita Falls 1979, Joplin, Jarrell, Andover, Murfreesboro 2009, Ruskin Heights, Kansas City 2003, Moore 1999, Moore 2013, Grand Island 1980).

Do those dewpoints and temps vary in any aspect from EF-1 to EF-3 and F-1 to F-3... [Read More]

Chasers creating panic on social network sites

Just wondering if anyone has noticed this?

There seems to be a growing trend on social networking sites of chasers posting "hyped-up" forecasts on severe weather days to generate more followers, e.g., potential customers. I see words like "significant" and "outbreak" being used on slight risk days or days when no such forecast is likely and no WFO or SPC outlook is using similar terminology. It's almost like chasers and some news /... [Read More]

I'll get the discussion rolling on this day because I'm conflicted on what I'm seeing. First off, I know there's been run-to-run discrepancies with the GFS on different aspects. Mainly, the moisture. It appears this might end up being a case of "just in time" moisture, which usually means this could be a case of shallow moisture. The GFS has stuck to a pretty general location of the dryline; roughly from Midlannd-Pampa-Oakley-Kearney. During the day it appears only low 50s dews before... [Read More]

Chasing software wants and wishes

I was curious what everyone out there wants or dreams of when it comes to chasing. What existing or new technology or software would make your chasing easier? What are your pain points?

Biggest pain points - I'd like an offline mapping solution that's lighter than Strips and Trips. Offline Google Maps might be perfect. I'd also like a free GpsGate alternative that doesn't do anything fancy besides splitting the ports and logging, and isn't a bear to get working in various... [Read More]

Chasertv Streaming questions

Apr 15, 2014 - 5:18 PM - by Windshear Kear
Hey guys. Last Sunday was my first time to stream live video. It was weird, and cool knowing strangers, friends and family were watching my chase LIVE. It cut down on all the calls and texts I normally get from people asking where I'm at and what I'm seeing. Anyway, I'm having a lot of trouble finding answers to my Chasertv questions. Apparently, I'm suppose to have 50GB worth of space where my streams are stored? I have no idea what cloud provider Chasertv is talking about, how I gain access,... [Read More]
