Storm Chasing in the EU
Dutch version

This part of the website is dedicated to stormchasing in the Netherlands and neighboring countries in Europe. In the Netherlands and Europe there is a lot of "severe weather" but it mostly is not as powerfull as in the US. Good startingpoints are the weather models of NWS-NCEP "GFS" and their European counterpart "ECMWF". The SPC counterpart in Europe is "ESTOFEX" which is widely used by European stormchasers. Netherlands has a lot of good sources of weather information too such as Skywarn, SevereWeather, Weer.nl of MeteoGroup, WeerPlaza, the blog of Karim Hamid and many others.
