Chasecation 2014 Multimedia Recap

Hey Fellow Chasers!

Since I 100% dropped the ball & didn't update as we went along (a total of 2500 miles in 4 days coupled with some chase frustration / spotty cell coverage will do that to you) ... I'll instead simply share the many photos and videos that Keith and I shot while chasing out in SW Texas & SE New Mexico this late spring. We had mostly marginal chase days - but the final day really paid off. No tornadoes officially sighted, but we were on four different gorgeous supercell structures... each different & awesome in their own ways. A few of my favorite pictures here below:

And to go along with the photo gallery - a playlist of our several chases as compiled by Keith. Most of these videos are linked to from the flickr descriptions - so you can watch the video that went along with the photo of that particular storm:

Enjoy fellow chasers!

Fellow chasers,

After a bit of a hiatus from chasing, I was back in the swing of things with another veteran chaser who happens to be a Sconnie alum. We headed up towards Cheyenne right around noon Saturday, and immediately had to chase one hell of a traffic jam on I-25 as soon as we left Denver. But I guess perseverance pays off. We were able to spot several nice looking LP cells northwest of Cheyenne that were not moving fast. After letting them develop, one managed to produce a funnel. Check out the video...

Headed South!

Whew! It's been quite a while since anyone (myself included) has posted to this chasing blog... time to fix that. I'll be heading South to Oklahoma City as a starting point this Thursday evening, with four days of planned chasecation Friday-Monday. Keith Cavey and I will be the two chasing during those four days, and we'll be sure to post updates on here, along with pictures and videos.

The overall setup isn't ideal for any massive outbreak in the next week, but certainly severe chances look good in the SW TX / SE NM area near that wobbling upper low.

As a teaser, here's a photo of our tornado warned supercell near Mount Pleasant, IA about a week and a half ago. Catch everyone soon!
