Do you love weather and wonder how the mysteries of Mother Nature work up close? Have you ever wanted to see a storm develop in front of your eyes? Well these are some of the things that Storm Chasers & Spotters do. Some CHASE the storm to get eyes on it & report its conditions as it moves and some just sit in a SPOT and watch conditions from afar and report what they’re seeing! Either way, if any of these things interest you let us know by sending us a message on here by going to our CONTACT page above and we can fill you in on what you’ll need to do to become a Chaser or Spotter. Most of the time just sitting at a location out of harms way and being a Spotter reporting weather conditions is more than enough. There’s a lot of things that you must take into account before-hand before you set out to track down storms, and the purpose of this post is to direct those wanting to get involved to the appropriate group(s) to accomplish that goal.
DISCLAIMER: NOAA/NWS & the Metrolina Spotter Group do not condone untrained person(s) from engaging in active severe weather conditions without proper training. It is VERY dangerous & can be fatal if caught in a bad situation. Please do NOT attempt to chase a storm if you don’t know what you’re doing or haven’t taken appropriate precautions.
