Phil's Storm Chasing Logs from 2004
This year I went storm chasing with veteran storm chaser and fellow UW-Milwaukee alumni Matt Ziebell.  This year was much more of a success than previous years which had a lot to do with my chase partner. I learned a lot about storm chasing in 2004...and future successful storm chases would be built on the lessons learned from this year. Click on the links below to see the chase logs from these days.
  • May 13-15, 2004 - Driving to our target area of northern Nebraska where we see a single cell thunderstorm.

  • May 16, 2004 - Many severe storms over north central Nebraska as a cold front sinks southward through the state.

  • May 17, 2004 - The best day of them all. A nice supercell over north central Kansas interacting with the front and producing textbook cloud photos.

  • May 18-21, 2004 - After a few bust days some opportunistic chasing in Wisconsin on the way home.

  • June 13, 2004 - Thunderstorm moves through the Green Bay area and produces an impressive looking shelf cloud.
