Frequently Asked Questions

Is Storm Chasing safe?

Our main aim is to keep you as safe as possible when storm chasing. That is why we only use skilled and experienced drivers and guides on your trip. There are risks involved but these are kept to a minimum by staying a safe distance from storms and other road users when parked up.

What vehicles do you use?

We more often than not will use large SUV’s. These are very comfortable and have plenty of space. You will be guaranteed a window seat too!

What equipment do you use to chase storms?

We use a variety of software and hardware products to help us gain valuable information when chasing storms. We use a satellite based radar system, Mobile Threat Net alongside mobile internet applications, GRLevel3 and Radarscope. Add in GPS mapping software and mobile internet and we’re fully equipped for the chase!

Will I see a tornado?

There are no guarantees of seeing a tornado but we will do our utmost to try and achieve this for you. To quote a chase friend “the weather will do what the weather will do!” Our tour dates are picked to coincide with the more active period for severe weather. This though cannot be forecast more than a few days out. We will do our very best to get you on some interesting serve storms!

Where will we be staying?

Having several years of experience, we know where to and where not to stay. The hotels will be of good quality such as Super 8, Best Western, Days Inn.

How much is the deposit?

We require a non refundable deposit of £250 to secure your spot on a tour. Your space is only guaranteed once we have received this.

Do you offer a payment plan?

We are very flexible with regards payment but we do require the non refundable deposit to book your place. Once this is paid we can arrange payments to suit with the balance being paid by 31st March on the year of your trip.

Will there be any extras to pay?

The price you see is the price you pay. Any unforeseen extras that need to be paid will be covered from our own pocket.

What happens in a typical day?

No two days are same but generally we will meet in the morning to discuss the days chasing ahead, answering any technical questions you may have. Then we will make our way towards the target area whilst monitoring the situation. A quick lunch and check on forecasts and data and we’ll then continue on our way. Once storms start to fire, we’ll pick one and get close! This will continue in to the evening when we’ll usually try and get some lightning shots before grabbing a bite to eat and heading for our overnight stay.
