Hi everyone, I go by Ness. I'm just an enthusiast trying to learn more. I'm in my 30s, working, going to college, and trying to learn more about weather to help report storms. Thanks for having me :)

Hey there, name's Will, 34, and I live in central Mississippi (north side of Jackson). I have been reading these forums since July 2020 as a guest and decided it's time I joined up. Have been interested in storms since I was a kid. I used to go out and watch lightening stike around the rez here in town back when I was young. Currently when I have the day off from work due to weather in area I go out in central and south MS chasing storms for personal data collection and assistance in spotter reports. Look forward to expanding my knowledge and interests in storms with you all.

Hi everyone, I'm Patches 41. I have a 13 year old daughter, Salisha, that has been interested in storm chasing since she was 7 or so. We live in Southern Indiana. Over the past year we decided to get more involved with the community so she can explore more than watching YouTube videos.

Hello from me, Jamie from the United Kingdom. Long time severe weather fan, hoping to make the trip of a lifetime to the US for some storm chasing in the next few years (global economy pending!). Wanted to sign up here so I could delve more into chasing, forecasting, and so forth, so when I am able to fly out I will have an idea of what I am doing!

Hello there! I'm Daniel, a fan from up in the great white north, who's had a passion for storms since a young age, in recent years, it's mainly been focusing on doing some amateur meteorology as chasing isn't really common up here.
I don't really plan on chasing any time soon, I'm mainly here to research and provide input for potential Canadian events (especially in my local area, since I know pretty much all the roads up here.)

Hi all, I live in north central Oklahoma and have been fascinated with weather as far back as I can recall. I grew up in the southeastern US, with zero knowledge that chasing even existed. When I moved to OK in the early 90s, I was amazed that it was possible to physically see supercell develop, evolve and collapse.

i stumbled on ST years ago, and have mostly lurked and learned during seasons when I have opportunity to chase. I am still somewhat of a beginner, and have always shied away from posting. But now being much older and maybe a tiny bit wiser, I know that posting will help me learn.

i love this community and look forward to engaging more!

Hello,
I'm a long time enthusiast and first season spotter out of Naperville, IL. The tornado that came through here a little more than a year ago pushed me to be even more interested in local weather. (I went to sleep that night, brushing off the storm since "nothing ever happens here" and slept through having a tornado touch down within walking distance, thankfully an EF0 at the time.)

Hello all! Ryan from AZ here. Raised in western Oklahoma so grew up watching storms. My job now bounces me back and forth to Texas so looking forward to chasing something besides haboobs here in the desert. Been a ham for a long time. Former DEC, registered with Phx NWS as well

Hi there! My name is DJ. I grew up in southeast Michigan but moved out to eastern Kansas in 2020. I'm in the academic field, mostly studying maritime history and 19th century shipwrecks; however, I've been a weather enthusiast since I was very young ('The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald' kickstarted my interest). Somewhere deep in my garage is a picture of me as a storm chaser during my 6th grade career day, so now that I live out here, I can hopefully make 12-year-old me proud!

Hello. My name is Jonathan, but I sometimes go by JJ. I'm in my teens, and located in the DC metro area. I've been interested in weather my whole life, but recently started getting into the science of it. I hope to go to either OU or University of Illinois and major in atmospheric sciences. I want to either work at a job like the national weather service or SPC, or work at an organization like the CSWR. I'm a sucker for pretty storm structures. Very excited to be here!. (Side note) If you want to send me articles or videos regarding beginner forecasting and stuff of that sort, that would be greatly appreciated!

Hello, my name is Chase. I am a tornado-crazy person of 14 and live in southeast MN. I picked up the storm chasing hobby just over a year ago but I have lately been learning how to forecast a read basic surface maps and stuff like that. (it takes hard work to get good at forecasting)

Greetings! im a 16 year old die-hard enthusiast from the west Michigan region. i am most well known for owning a large social club (kind of like stormtrack;)) on the XBOX club community, and have a large presence in the MANY storm chasing "games" on the Roblox game website platform. i am planning to dip my feet into deeper waters soon and do some IRL chasing, but im still learning and relatively new to the more complex side of chasing. i am using this website to learn and connect with like-minded peeps, see you on the site!

Hey all, my name's Josh Hoover and I'm a weather enthusiast from Central Indiana. I'm 22 and I've been interested in weather ever since I was a kid. I started chasing this year and only managed to chase 4 storms and I still have lots to learn before I'd personally consider myself a storm chaser. And thanks to having gotten a job at Purdue University, I can finally start working towards a meteorology degree without needing to worry about debt. Only downside is that Purdue requires it's employees to be part-time students, so it's going to take twice as long to achieve that degree, but I'm hoping to rack up more chasing experience during these next 6-7 years. Oh and the girl in my avatar is my girlfriend from Louisiana.
