Netweather Storm Chases: Supercells, Tornadoes Lightning and Good Times

Recommended Posts

With the storm chase just days away (tour 1 build up here), I thought a good way to whet the appetite would be to share some of the amazing supercells, tornadoes and lightning that the Netweather team have witnessed in the last few years..

 

So here's the first batch - a random assortment to get the ball rolling..

Another batch this time all from the final day of the 2013 chase - 22nd June in Wyoming and Nebraska. (made for a long drive back to the airport, but it was worth it!)

Thought for this batch I'd take a trip down memory lane - right back to tour 1 2008. My first chase, and also Michael Fish's first chase.

 

This one was Mike's first ever US supercell

Another of the supercells from later in the tour.

A nice hail core coming right at us - I remember this one as it moved past as it went from being 85f to 50f in about 30 seconds as the cold outflow winds from the storm hit us. It's then you realise just how much air these things are sucking in, and later spitting out!

It's not just about the chasing - Stu was our first guest to try the 72oz steak challenge, unfortunately he didn't make it. Edit - when I say didn't make it, it didn't finish him off or anything, he just couldn't eat it all in time!

And finally, on a down day we went to the little house on the prairie, we've not been back there in all the years since. Nuff said...

Next up, I'm thinking something from 2010.

Onto the next one - it's from 2010 - Day 23 to be precise, and according to Paul's report, it was one of his best days ever...

 

It was a high risk day, the team started in Texas but soon headed into Oklahoma where they bagged 5 tornadoes, and some incredibly structured supercells. Here are some of the highlights:
