  1. 12z NAM rolling into the station, not much use at this stage however, but fun to look at

  2. Who wants to go on a 9 hour road trip to visit my grandmother and watch a historical potential blizzard impact the BUF region? I will pay for the trip, I just need someone who wants to drive a car and myself to the city of Buffalo where we can take video and witness the rare power of mother nature. Any takers
  3. Hey guys, I'm working on a website / software ordeal where severe weather enthusiasts and meteorologists can enter their: 1.) Tornado target city 2.) # of tornadoes they think will occur for the day 3.) Probability of 1 or more EF3+ tornadoes being reported. You can score points based off your performance and level up throughout the contest. I then will take all of this submitted data by ALL users and combine it together on a map and in statistical averages, so it is in a way, crowd casting. This could be really cool. Registration closes May 2nd-ish, but I might allow a few late registree-s depending on how many people we get. There will be some prizes as well http://wikiwx.com/score-points-based-off-your-tornado-target-forecast-now/ Here's an image of what plotted tornado target points would look like on a map. Let me know what you guys think of this idea / any improvements etc. That could be made. It's in experimental version this year but I may develop this into a software of some kind pending theres enough interest.
  4. Panorama of double sided shelf cloud.
  5. I'm forwarding an announcement from Blake Naftel (KC8VPG) regarding his ambitious project to document the history of storm chasing and storm chasers from all eras beginning in the 1950s. It will include scientific, recreational, and commercial chasing and the changes in nature of chasing, including the vast progress of meteorology and technology through the years. Thunderstorms and tornadoes are the focus but tropical cyclones and possibly other phenomena will also be included. Naftel is a veteran chaser and a visual artist with significant television experience and he has the aptitude and technical capability to carry this project to fruition with great results. This project has the backing and cooperation of many seasoned storm chasers and meteorologists. A Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign just launched. I have not been too active since the EasternUSWx days but do intend to change that! As this project will pertain to past weather events and shifts in meteorology, I included it in this section, but if it's more appropriate elsewhere, my apologies. ##### Hello! My name is Blake Naftel, a fellow storm chaser, visual journalist, and filmmaker from Grand Rapids, Michigan. I currently am in the process of raising funds via Kickstarter to complete what will become a six-part documentary anthology series focused on the full history of storm chasing culture. The project has been a long time in the making, beginning initially in 2003 as a simple film on the humanity of storm chasing. I re-initiated the project in November 2013 following the personal losses we experienced within the storm chasing community last year, and have since been building up to initiate a public fundraising campaign. The plan, in brief, is to spend three to five weeks this fall traveling through 31-states, sitting down with storm chasers and meteorologists from every decade that storm chasing has been an activity (1956 to present). The result would be individuals sharing their experiences and memories, eventually building an in-depth visual chronicle of the activity we are all so passionate about. The anticipated release of the completed documentary would be in October 2015. Please visit the currently ongoing Kickstarter campaign, which concludes on Friday, July 25 at 11:10 a.m. ET. The primary website for the Storm Chasing History Anthology Project is: http://stormchasinghistory.net/ A Facebook page has also been created, please feel free to share this far and wide on! Any form of donation will help further this collaborative documentary and archival project. Thank you to everyone who has already shared interest, encouragement, and enthusiasm for this project thus far! Blake #####
