Chris, as far as I know, I-35 runs south from Kansas through Texas. West of there is the alley where you can see storm on the horizon hundreds of miles away. East of there you get into the forests and towns and it becoms hard to track storms if you can't see them. Chances are even greater east of I-35 of stormchasing fatalities due to this. West of the interstate through Oaklahoma and northern Texas, I belive, is the best part of the states to chase tornadoes. We're a couple of months removed from tornado season, but right now comes lightning season for spotting lightning strikes. In a couple of months will be hurricane season in the coastal states, then through the winter will basically be catching snowstorms in the northern states. However, winter tornado season in the Gulf states can be quite spectacular if you're willing to risk it. Tornadoes here are generally more powerful than during spring season in the Alley. That's about the whole lo' down on the situation.
I don't know, so this is my signature.
