I believe we had a separate thread for severe weather stuff last year, so figured I would start one for this season. 

 

Here's some pics I took from my chase in Kansas on May 1st.

Looking like Wed pm will be a good test of 2 things. Whether this season will continue the more active severe trend seen so far and SPC's usefulness in predicting it a few days in advance.

I think I'll continue using the monthly threads for severe wx discussion. That's what the point of those are. I'll share whatever pics I get here though.

Thanks! I'm very lucky. I have a wife that let's me be gone(although I usually get some grief, but she knows this is my passion and what keeps me happy :) ).

I also have a job where I can take off time whenever I want every year. Unfortunately it's a sales job, so it can hurt my final numbers every month.

I also have a guy that pays me to take him out chasing. He's a photographer and wants tornado and supercell pictures. I wouldn't have been able to go 3 days in a row last week and to Oklahoma without being paid nicely. Here's a link to his website. He takes AMAZING pictures!

Had some severe weather south of me last night. I think Detroit got hammered. My area just received heavy rain w/ some wind.

Went chasing on May 18th down in western Kansas. Tornado chances weren't really high, but it had been a couple weeks with no chases and it looks horrible again for the foreseeable future.

My chase partner and I went to near Scott City. Storms took much longer to form than forecast near 6-630. They were moving slowly and we were meandering around on the back roads when we happened to come across Monument Rock. Very cool thing to see in the middle of the Kansas plains. We had a storm forming while there just to our west and again since motion was very slowly to the north we were able to just sit and watch it. It tried spinning something up at the back of the storm, but then fell apart when a storm from the south merged with it. We went after one more storm to our north making it there just before sunset. It had a tornado warning come out shortly thereafter and for a minute or two looked interesting, but it weakened a short time later. Then had to make the 7 hour drive home getting home about 4 in the morning! Had low expectations going in but still ended up with decent pictures.

Some severe weather this weekend is possible for my area. MDW looks kinda iffy. Those storms could put a damper on the outdoor activities for those Michiganders.

Stuff like that is why I miss living out in the flatlands west of OKC. When I was a kid I could watch storms forever before they got to where I was. That and Gary England are the 2 real reasons I fell in love with weather and now will be in love with it forever. Awesome power.
