2015 Storm Chase Videos
This was the second of two extreme ice storms to devastate central Oklahoma during the months of November/December 2015. We spent time in and around El Reno, Oklahoma documenting the widespread damage this storm caused. Ice storms are some of the more destructive weather phenomena, as they tend to devastate power grids as well as…
This was a day we probably knew better. But alas, we set out for severe storms in Central Oklahoma in the middle of August when it appeared there might just be enough wind shear to have a few interesting things happen — it wasn’t to be though.
A late season chase opportunity was just what the doctor ordered before summer set in. In this case, severe storms with damaging winds developed on the west sides of the OKC metro area. Some pretty timelapses were achieved on this day!
As bill lifted northwards towards Oklahoma, the stage was set for an extreme rainfall event with dangerous flash flooding. We were already completely soaked from what was an incredible spring season of rainfall with watersheds already running full. When Bill impacted the region, flooding was a certainty.
2015 saw epic amounts of rain over the Southern Plains. Here’s a few shots of the flood gates at Lake Overholser open with extreme amounts of water rushing out. You usually don’t see the river up like this behind the dam — but thanks to repeated heavy rain events it was a necessary action to…
A boundary was set up from SW to NE in Oklahoma on May 6, 2015 with a tornado risk easily outlined. We got a slightly late start to the day, missing the first tornadoes SW of Chickasha, OK — but we made up for it by finishing strong with this multi-tornado producer near Verden, Oklahoma.
Every now and again we like to show the people behind the scenes making the videos you see on the channel. On April 22, 2015, a supercell traversed south and east through the Texas Panhandle before another formed and had some spectacular structure. This is a video showing off how the team came together at…
This beautiful sunset looks like it was captured on the backside of an anvil shield behind a line of storms. The reality is it was captured as high cirrus with mammatus moved over the OKC metro area during sunset.
Just before the drought broke in Central Oklahoma — it is hard to believe that 2015 was so dry before the rains came that spring. Lake Overholser was down by many feet, with large portions of lake bed visible and easily traversed in the middle parts of March.
A snowstorm across the OKC metro area once again caused traffic tie-ups during the winter of early 2015. This was a busy storm pattern which portended an active spring to come!
Snow from around OKC. This was a minor snow event but it was part of a larger pattern of a busy winter season across Oklahoma.
Another pretty Oklahoma snowstorm with pretty scenes to film!
