We joke about it, but the amount of ways any given chase day can fail to live up to expectations consists of a laughably diverse set of circumstances. This is literally one of the countless draws to storm chasing for us.
Still, each season you only get so many chase days and any chase day is better than a day at the office! So one must enjoy each day as the unique experience it is. On this chase from The Lost Chases Collection, we had really high expectations going into the day — but an unfortunate miscalculation left us with anti-cyclonic storms shooting north through our target area.
These left splits are notorious big hail producers, but tornadoes are more rare. Check out the video for how we tried to adjust on this day and some visual depictions of left split vs. right split supercells!
