    Hey folks, I thought I'd share a video version of a presentation I put together for the 2015 DuPage Advanced Severe Weather Seminar and the 2015 Minnesota Severe Storms Conferences. The title is Storm Spotting Secrets and it covers topics in anticipating tornadoes using visual cues in supercell structure. This is the information I've found to be most specific to identifying if and where tornadoes will form. I wanted to point and emphasize things that I've learned in the field as a chaser that aren't covered in great detail in spotter class but could greatly benefit spotters.

    Fantastic video and incredibly informative! I'm going to have to look back at my videos and photos of past storms to see if I can put this knowledge to use for the future.

    Thank you for putting together this presentation, Skip! It is very informative, and I learned something from it. I put this video in my favorites folder on Youtube for future reference, and plan on sharing this with other spotters in my area.

    Thanks for the video, @Skip Talbot . With every step, I learned something new. I’ll watch it at least five more times. It would do well if you CONTINUED your Storm Lapse Series!
