Have a look at the photo to the left. What do you see? Nothing special? Perhaps you recognize this as a photo of an anvil from a towering thunderstorm? If you have never been on a storm chasing tour, chances are you probably wouldn’t look twice at a cloud like this.
After a storm chasing tour, however, this “insignificant” cloud will be stimulus for a raised pulse and a strong sense of anticipation of what is to come, because you know what this type of cloud can produce an hour or two into the future.
In brief, when you have been on a storm chasing tour you will never look at the sky the same way again.

I had an awesome time with Tempest. The staff is very helpful with the
booking process and all throughout the trip; tour director (Bill Reid)
and the drivers (Jen and Chris) have been extremely clear during their
weather briefing and explaining what was going on with the developing
weather in general.
I chased two back-to-back tours with Tempest in 2013 and had a great time! Their skilled guides get you a ringside seat on the best storms, not to mention being helpful, funny, and great educators into the bargain. ‘Safety-first’ is no idle boast, and I was very impressed by their dedication to keeping me safe through all aspects of the chase.
