Web Master Note:   Due to the fact that the Internet is not 100% reliable, check the time and date on the radar. Because data errors can occur, do not rely on Internet radar images in times of severe weather.  For severe weather coverage tune to your local TV station or NOAA weather radio.

While storm chasing out in the field, storm chasers rely partly on weather radar data they receive through the internet. Here are some of the sites they use.

Disclaimer:

Storm chasing is dangerous. You could be hurt or killed in its pursuit, especially if you have little or no knowledge of severe storms and their environment. Chase hazards include but are not limited to heavy rain, flash flooding, lightning, high winds, large hail, tornadoes, and flying debris. Hydroplaning on the road and traffic accidents also occur. If you desire to chase, get informed and educated about weather. Contact your local National Weather Service Office, and enroll in a SKYWARN training class. Read and view all of the published information regarding severe weather, thunderstorms, and tornadoes that you can. You are responsible for educating yourself. Next, contact an experienced chaser in your area, and arrange to travel with them, until you've gained sufficient experience to go it alone. Even at that, veteran chasers get caught in harm's way from time to time. Play it safe.
