My name is Seth Price, and I am the president and owner of High Plains Tours, LLC. If you would like to storm chase with me, please visit High Plains Tours, LLC and sign up for a tour.
I have been chasing storms in the Great Plains since 2003, with customers, university groups (Virginia Tech, New Mexico Tech), friends, family, and sometimes, on my own.
I am an chemical engineering instructor at New Mexico Tech, but I also hold a Bachelor’s degree in Operational Meteorology from Mississippi State University.
I am a Skywarn Spotter and an active amateur radio operator. My amateur radio call sign is N3MRA.
I am using this site as a way to document my predictions and the storms that follow from my predictions.
This blog will be updated as follows:
Sunday – Video of the Week: I will post a weather-related video that I found each week. Some of these will be from television or social media. Feel free to send me your video, and I may feature it on this site!
Monday – Weather Station Data: I will go through the data collected by my weather station over the past week.
Tuesday – Weekly Model Update: I will go through some of the numeric models and discuss what areas I see for later in the week.
Wednesday – Storm Prediction Center Update: I will go through the SPC outlook for the next seven days and see what could be developing, according to the SPC.
Thursday – Reading: I will comment on a weather article, or perhaps a book that I am reading that pertains to the weather.
Friday – Tropical Update: I will take a look at the tropics (Atlantic and Pacific) and post about any developing tropical depressions, storms or hurricanes that may impact US territories..
Saturday – Satellite Image of the Week: There is always something neat to see with our satellites. I will post my favorite of the week on Saturday.
In addition to these, I will also post something related to the local weather every day, unless another trigger is activated. By other trigger, I mean:
Storm Chase Day: If I am on the road chasing storms, I will obviously post about these instead of local, NM weather.
Moderate Risk or Greater: If the SPC has issued a Moderate Risk or High Risk anywhere in the country, I will do a severe storm related forecast there instead.
10% Tornado Risk or Greater: If the SPC has issued a 10% or greater risk in the Great Plains (I-25 to I-35, Canada to Mexico borders), I will do a severe storm related forecast there instead.
Hurricane Threat: If a tropical storm or hurricane looks like it will make landfall in the next 24 hours, I will post about this threat.
Other Major Weather Event: Blizzards, Nor’Easters, etc.
By reading this blog, you recognize that I am not responsible for any injury you might get from following my predictions on this site. For weather warning information, stay tuned to local media outlets, NOT this blog.
I also make zero dollars from this blog. I will not catch every single weather event, on this blog. My regular work/family/travel obligations will take priority, but I will do my best to post here as often as I can.
