Tornado Ted’s Storm Chasing Tour!
Contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
How would you like to track down severe storms over the central U.S. during the peak of thunderstorm and tornado season? You wouldn’t have to drive or know anything about storms, it’s a guided tour where you sit back and let someone else take you to ground zero of severe storm development. What if the tour guide was a 27 year veteran of tracking and forecasting severe storms in the Ozarks?
If severe storms excite you, if you are awestruck by the raw power of nature, if the thrill of the chase is something you’d like to experience then I have a program for you…
Missouri State Storm Chasing
In 2009 and 2011, I led students from Missouri State University on a storm chase class. It was fantastic! The students woke up to a weather briefing each morning where the day’s severe weather possibilities were outlined and discussed. Then about 22 students loaded into three vans and off we went in search of severe storms. Our chases took us from Texas to Wyoming, Colorado to Iowa. Every day was different, we saw lots of wonderful storm structure and features including wall clouds, gust fronts, gustnadoes, anticyclonic storms, amazing lightning shows and of course tornadoes! At the end of the day, we checked in to the nearest motel and then started the whole thing over the next day.
Now, My Personal Tours
What I did in an academic setting I would now like to offer to the general public. Coming this spring, you can go on a storm chase tour with Tornado Ted!
The sum of my experiences as a television meteorologist, severe weather forecaster and tracker and storm chaser will be available to you during the tour. Stories from television broadcasting, major severe weather events relived from someone who was there, discussions of why storms form and complete explanations of what we are seeing as we see it are just some of the things I offer during the tour. Imagine being able to ask questions about all aspects of weather including severe storms anytime you like.
