Storm chasing

Storm chasing is broadly defined as the intentional pursuit of a thunderstorm, regardless of motive.

A person who storm chases is known as a storm chaser, or simply a chaser.

While witnessing a tornado is the biggest objective for most chasers, many delight in seeing cumulonimbus structure, watching a barrage of hail and lightning, and seeing what skyscapes unfold.

Deutsche Welle (Sep. 17, 2013) There are around 20 million active surfers worldwide all chasing the same thing: the perfect wave. The problem is that, as a natural phenomenon, the perfect wave is pretty hard to come by.
