Hello all,

I thought I would share a link for an Interactive radar that shows the position of every storm chaser in the US. Because it originates from the Texas Tech meso-net, and is on the KCBD - Lubbock, Texas website, it will default to the southern Texas panhandle, but you can use your mouse and go to any state.

It will show all radar activity seamlessly, and also the position of all the storm chasers who are chasing and online. Click on the little cars, and it will show you their live stream view, if they have one.

Currently I counted close to 40 of them this evening, amassed along a line from western Oklahoma, the panhandle of Oklahoma, and up into eastern Colorado, western Kansas and western Nebraska (which is starting to fire up storms). This is an excellent link for those who enjoy weather and storm chasing but cannot do it themselves.

They wouldn't be out and about unless they are anticipating activity this evening. Just like the chaser who was at the end of our caliche road yesterday evening, they know just where to find the storms. Their heavy presence is a give-away as to where they feel the storms will pop.

Enjoy!

I don't know, from the weather map on weathercom everything looks all clear out there. It's only showing a few patches.That website is pretty neat though.

Yeah, it looks clear as a bell to the south in Oklahoma where a bunch of chasers are sitting. But they've been sitting there for hours and are online, so they are expecting something. Go to the north and see what the chasers see in northwest Kansas and southwest Nebraska. It's starting to fire up there.

I'm terrified of tornadoes myself, but the presence of chasers before the storm may help people know what's coming before the radar actually shows something.

Ah, okay. I didn't see it at first, but once you zoom out you can see the storm about ready to form. Hmm, they are not going to see anything in the dark. lol Be best best if it was during the day so they can capture an image rather than a dark screen.

the next few days are gonna be messy! of course, no one can ever been totally accurate so there's always the chance that nothing will happen but the likely hood is pretty high.

Thanks for the tor-con readings for the next few days. Of course, they are just estimated probabilities, but weather forecasting is still an inaccurate science...but it gets more accurate every year....very handy to get it right if you live in a tornado prone area!

When the storm chasers show up in your neck of the woods in one of these..




This is what is coming your way,hopefully not,but maybe......



www.washingtonpost.com...

It happened just 15 miles north of me.

Not trying to scare anyone,just to make you aware.

Be safe.

Ha, that thing looks like a tank. The storm chaser who was by our house was in a regular GMC SUV with some bracing on the front, and a bunch of antennas sticking out of it. I guess he's hoping to outrun the tornadoes rather than to get to close to one!

I would like one of those tank vehicles the next time I have to drive in Dallas traffic.

The storms are suppose to arrive in my area over the
weekend. Hoping for no tornados as I have been thru
one bad one and that is enough. I get anxiety every
time the season rolls around and especially when
we get storms. Stay safe out there everyone!

This website is far superior to the one you posted OP. Look at the controls on the right side of the screen. The expand up and down, can show storm tracks, severe weather etc.... Trust me, you will love it! Completely interactive!

Well, I'm sure it has some cool stuff on it, but I did post my link so people can track the chasers and see what they're seeing. The chasers give the clues where wild weather is expected, well before anything shows up on radar. I enjoy seeing the chasers, so I thought other people might like that extra little bit of information as well.

Exactly...that was the point of your thread lol...the one the other poster linked to does not provide chasers, so I don't get the point.

But, pissed I can't view your link on my iPad.

I would think you have the capacity to find an app for that,or something similar,or do you prefer to be spoon fed.
