Surface Observations

Spotter and Tornado Basics

Meteorology Basics

  • About wind barbs – A quick explanation on what those little arrows mean.
  • UCAR – MetEd – A really great learning resource. Too many subjects to list, but I remember this site as the main way I learned to understand radar

Useful Videos

NOTE: You will notice the title of this section is useful videos. There is a ton of tornado and storm related videos online, many of which have shaky footage and excited chasers. Not to say that those can’t be interesting or entertaining; I just don’t find them helpful to learn to storm chase. The videos below were those I found to be educational.
