Marginal Severe Storms in SW OK – March 31, 2015

It was a longshot, but myself and Brandon Sullivan set out to film what we hoped were going to be some very pretty storms in the late afternoon and evening of March 31, 2015.

My 12 years of chasing is nothing to sneeze at, but many of these come from people with 30-40 years of chasing — and they’re wise lessons indeed. […]

Busy Week of Severe Weather Ahead!

Remember when we were talking about March being slow, not busy?

I remember writing back at the beginning of the month that the last half would be much different and we’d have severe weather — but it seems like we went from 0 to 60 in a blink of an eye.
