It's that time of the year again, as the annual storm chase to the USA gets underway.

The tour 1 team are out in the USA already, with yesterday being the arrival day for the tour. It's a full, 3 car tour this one, with a lot of chase virgins joining their first ever storm chase!

Staff
Paul Sherman
Arron Hiscox
Nick Finnis
Tony Cooper

Guests

Christina (chase virgin)

The team have overnighted in Childress, and are in a good position for the action today, which includes a 5% tornado risk, and a good chance of supercells to get the tour off to a bit of a flying start. As usual, we'll be streaming live once the action is underway later:

Paul's already started a thread for today here:

And if you missed it yesterday, in her latest blog, Jo has been chatting with Richard Cooke (Cookie) who's out on tour 2, and also Christina who's out on tour 1, about their hopes for the tours, why they wanted to chase and much more. It's well worth a read :D 
Storm Chase USA - Off we go!

As we head through the tours, please feel free to ask questions in the threads, give your forecasts for likely targets, or just share your reactions to the great photos and videos the teams are sure to capture.

Good luck to all those out chasing!

Good Luck to all. GPS has the car in DFW?

Though live stream is showing motel room door!

They've switched on the GPS now, that stream was just a recording of the test in Dallas a couple of days ago I think.

Stream working fine on my phone. Great to see you started already. The usual Surbiton two will be checking in nightly. Can't wait (we secretly wait all year!) and good luck:)

I'm jelly. I have always wanted to go storm chasing in the states but never had the budget or time. Maybe next year! Hope everything goes well and you get to see some amazing storms. I'll be sure to keep an eye on your blog/videos! Keep safe.
