New Mexico’s Year: This ‘Down’ Day Resulted in a Mean Supercell!

This is the year that, no matter what, it seemed like setups in New Mexico just did amazing things....

The year’s most intense supercell? In NEW MEXICO?!

I did not, under any circumstances, think May 24, 2023 would present one of the most powerful supercells I’ve ever seen.

Trouble in Texas – Explosive Supercells, Tornado Warned, and the Austin Metro (May 5, 2023)

This day started off how we expected but we knew, the day could not move into…

Texas Tornado Warned Supercells – Crowell to Paducah (May 4, 2023)

This was a day we were anticipating a lot because it looked like we had a classic May tornado day set to happen across Western North Texas. All we needed were supercells, and supercells are exactly what we got. And exactly all we got. This was an eventful chase with several different supercells and I…
