Storm chasers are experienced weather enthusiasts that track and monitor severe weather events. Equipped with weather stations and weather monitoring technology, storm chasers and spotters are usually trained by the National Weather Service and even have a direct number to their local NWS office to report current conditions whether home or out on the road. By sharing these local updates on severe weather conditions, storm spotters and storm chasers help keep the community safe. The NWS uses these local reports to alert the community and emergency responders. Here's more information on how to train to become a storm spotter with the NWS.

The safest way to become a storm chaser or storm spotter includes a training program through your local National Weather Service office. This program will help you understand storm development and storm progression while also teaching you dangers to be aware of — such as lightning development — and corresponding safety precautions to keep you safe while out on the road. Learn more about becoming a storm spotter.

Storm chasers and storm spotters use a variety of weather monitoring equipment while out on the road. Currently, equipment depends on internet availability and Wi-Fi options in each storm chasing vehicle. The most robust storm chasers have their own radar equipment, which can get costly! Many storm spotters use AcuRite weather sensors, which is a more affordable option. The most common and easiest to use while out chasing are handheld, portable weather tools like the portable anemometer and the lightning detector. However, some chasers also opt for one of our Wi-Fi-compatible weather stations and create their own custom weather station mount to set up on their vehicle. Whether they use the handheld weather tools or complete weather station units, they can easily report these real-time weather observations to their local National Weather Service office to help inform the community and emergency responders.
