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.
