Over the years I have seen some INCREDIBLE storm structure. From flying saucers to menacing HP monsters with dark underbellies and everything in between. Tornadoes are always a big success forecasting wise for storm chasing, but I feel the same way about really impressive storm structure. I am very excited on the drive home if I see intense and interesting structure on storms.
Typically, storms get structured up due to tons of spin in the atmosphere caused by intense turning of winds with height. If you are looking for the setups with the best structure, you want the hodographs to be very curved with winds turning from the S or SE to the W/NW by the mid levels of the atmosphere.
For this week’s video, I wanted to take a trip down memory lane to look at just a few of my favorite structure days over the years, but only just a few.
