Upper level jet stream winds and a rich supply of Gulf of Mexico humidity will spell some severe weather episodes over the central U.S. this weekend.
I’d say I’m about 70% in for the “Lock and Load” tour for Thursday, April 9th. A “Lock and Load” tour is your chance to ride along with me and see some severe storms in active. Since I’m considering southern Oklahoma and northern Texas as the chase zone, an overnight stay is required. “Lock and […]
After looking at the morning data, I think a storm chase is too problematic today. I talked about a “Quick Shot” tour today (not requiring an overnight stay) in my blog last night.

I believe there are two portions to a chase tomorrow in the Great Plains. First, I’m going to be on the lookout for possible severe convection occurring earlier than conventional wisdom would suggest. I believe […]
[NOTE: an update to this tour will come out later on Tuesday morning!] Last Tuesday, “Tornado Ted’s Storm Chasing Tour” led its first chase into the Great Plains. You can review that chase here. Now, another area of severe storms looks probable over portions of Kansas and Oklahoma on Wednesday! The Storm Prediction Center has […]
Tuesday will mark the first chase for my new company “Tornado Ted’s Storm Chasing Tour”! An outbreak of severe thunderstorms is expected over portions of Kansas and Oklahoma on Tuesday. This is the perfect set-up for a “Lock and Load” storm chase. “Lock and Load” chases are one of several I offer. They are designed […]

It’s hard to “look over” a severe day, namely Monday, but for a variety of reasons, Tuesday works better. Monday certainly […]
