CHOOSE YOUR LOCATION. GET PICKED UP. CHASE STORMS.

The Go Storm Chasing program is designed with the busy client in mind. It is less expensive and more flexible than traditional storm tours or workshops. Another advantage is that the best setups are chosen several days in advance rather than blindly scheduling predetermined week long blocks for guests months in advance. This program even comes with a storm guarantee,
'If you don't see a storm, your next storm chase is on the house.'

Storm chasing is different than storm chase tours. You won't be crammed into a large van with several other people and some tour guide that you don't even know. You will be riding along with Jason while learning all of the nuances of chasing thunderstorms including forecasting, setting up a vehicle for storm chasing, live streaming your chases, safely navigating around a storm to get into the best position for photographs and video, editing your work, and selling it to the media to make some money and gain more exposure. 

You simply sign up, pay your deposit, and choose a location where Jason Weingart will pick you up.

Your chase could be any time of the year. Jason has documented tornadoes in Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter months. When a chase opportunity arises, Jason will notify those on the list no less than 5 days in advance. If your schedule allows you to chase, you reply that you are available, pay the remaining balance, and you're all set. 

The pickup locations available are Austin, Dallas, Oklahoma City, and Wichita. Different pickup locations are possible, but do require some extra planning. If you need a different pickup location, fill out the form at the bottom of the page.  


Images from people that have gone storm chasing with Jason

"My lifelong dream was to witness a tornado, so I signed up for Jason Weingart's Supercell Adventure. We saw 13 tornadoes in 3 days! It far exceeded my expectations. I didn't just get to witness supercells and tornadoes, I also got incredible pictures and videos of them to take home to show my family and friends. 
Thank you Jason!"
