How? What? When? Where? Who?Why?[FAQs]
How do you decide where to chase on a given day?

I generally watch the forecast models for three days before any day where I know my schedule will allow me to chase.  The models generally give a good idea when and where the risk of severe storms will occur.

If I can chase on the day(s) where severe weather is expected, I start making phone calls to potential chase partners.  Since it is much more dangerous to chase alone (with one pair of eyes to cover driving, checking the sky, etc.) than with several pairs of eyes to scan the skies, I do not chase if I cannot find someone to go with me.
