Call it whatever you want, but we call it Prime Time on the Plains.
For many reasons, setups during this special time of the year just tend to work out for storm chasers. Things that seemingly sink days in April mean nothing in May as storms find ways to produce tornadoes.
Of course its not really THAT magical as there’s some good science behind May being so great — as its one of the best times for Instability and Wind Shear to max out with longer days also present. But still, its a magical time for storm chasing.
This episode of WiLD Weather takes us to two different days where there were some serious caveats going in, but both ended up producing tornadoes. The first, May 22, 2016 in the Texas Panhandle. The second: May 25, 2016 in Northern Oklahoma.
