I hope you had a great holiday season and new year. I figured I'd get the ball rolling with a new 2024 thread. How was your chase season? What do you hope this year brings? Any big plans or predictions for 2024?
Now on to the seasonal forecasting stuff.
I am reshowing some of...
Hello all, I bring to y’all another past tornado chase! On this day in 1998, a late season F3 tornado would impact area around Yocemento KS. Mike Umscheid, who would later become a meteorologist with NWS Dodge City, would capture almost the entire lifecycle of the tornado, eventually losing it...
I finally remembered the password to my Stormtrack account. This day is pretty much synonymous with the Manchester area tornadoes, but in honor of 19 years a couple months ago, I was given permission to share Eric Nguyen’s videos of the Centerville area tornadoes (thank you Scott Currens), which...

Hello, weather enthusiasts! My name is Ash and I'm an Atmospheric Science and Meterology student through the The University of Arizona, residing in West Virginia. Upon graduation, I hope to work with a weather team to develop new radar programs and help increase tornado warning times. With that...
Georgia is leading the country in the number of tornadoes that have broken out across the country in 2017 so far.
As of April 3, Georgia has had 55 confirmed tornadoes touch down in the...
What an interesting day. Knew the day had low-topped supercell potential, so decided to venture out with an initial target of Osborne, KS. We figured that was the best combination of low level SRH and moisture. At a glance, parameters were marginal, but CAPE profiles through the depth of the...

I was reading about this event the other day and it had me wondering:
Why do nocturnal tornadoes tend to occur with a greater frequency in Dixie Alley...
"Now, a new study shows that the average number of tornadoes in these outbreaks has risen since 1954, and that the chance of extreme outbreaks —tornado factories like the one in 2011—has also increased."
several model runs in a row now have shown a strong storm system moving though the srn plains, mid ms river valley, tn valley, and ohio valley areas next wednesday and thursday. Some understandable uncertainty exists to strenght and timing of this system due to it still being several days away...
"This week I came across an analysis by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)’s Storm Prediction Center showing what counties in the United States experience the most tornadoes. The top spot went to Weld County, Colorado." ~ Marshall Shepherd...
