Tornado Titans – “The Titan Way” – 2012 Website Re-launch Trailer
This was a fun little trailer we put together for the late 2012 relaunch of our website. This was the relaunch that we built on for 7 years before building the new TornadoTitans.com that we debuted this fall. And this film? Still one of our faves we’ve produced.
Gene’s Chase Car Tour | Vlog
Gene is a very pragmatic person with his design of his chase vehicle. Call it an old pilots instinct, but Gene has a pretty simple setup so he can focus on the storms in front of him. In the front is a regular ham radio, a laptop, and a dash cam for streaming of some…
Missing: Storm Season (If found please return to the plains) | 4/23/18 | Vlog
Storm season was missing as of mid-April. We had just come off filming a destructive wildfire which can only happen during mid-April if the Southern Plains are in a drought situation. The drought was serious and the prospects for meaningful storm chases seemed slim.
The Chases are coming! | 4/10/18 | Vlog
It seemed like the chases were about ready to start anew. But little did we know the biggest weather story of the next week was going to be the opposite of rain and water.
Storms soon? We’ll See | March 24, 2018 | Vlog
Sanner and Gene spent some time talking about upcoming storm chase chances in the Southern Plains to start the 2018 storm chase season. This was previewing what looked to be a pretty active late March pattern. If only we knew now what we knew then about the 2018 season!
Remember the Hammon Tornado (3/8/10) | Vlog
The Hammon tornado was one of the wildest chase days. With western Oklahoma beginning the day without a tornado risk, we ended the day with a long track, damaging tornado in what seemed to be an otherwise quite marginal environment. This retrospective took a look at the tornado 8 years later.
The HREF is an Underutilized Tool, You Need to Use It! | February 18, 2018 | Vlog
This was a fun vlog to put together where Sanner talked the first storm chase chances of 2018 but also they talked about a very important tool: the HREF. The HREF is largely under-utilized by chasers in favor of the HRRR, but the HREF actually includes the HRRR and other high res models, giving you…
If you only had three single parameters to forecast a chase with, what would they be? | Vlog
This video is part of our vlog series (and our 2018 relaunch). In this video Sanner plays a fun thought experiment and forces you to pick the three parameters you’d forecast with if you could only have three. However the rules are a bit trickier than they sound: 1)No obs whatsoever (aka no radar, satellite,…
