Hello Gabriel,
Yes you definitely want to look into studying to be a meteorologist. As there is a lot you need to learn in studying storm structures, RADAR, Satellite images and more about the science so you can safely storm chase. I went to SUNY Oswego and they have a Storm Chasing Program for 2 weeks each summer. The Summer right after I graduated I was selected to the Storm Chasing Program and I learned so much being out in the field driving and chasing storms across the US. Look for schools that offer these types of opportunities and it is well worth it.

Hello Gabriel,

Wow, the career path you're interested in is truly thrilling! Storm chasers aren't just thrill-seekers, they're scientists! They gather valuable data that goes beyond just understanding weather patterns. This information is key in developing technology that can provide warnings and assistance against the impacts of climate change.

If you're looking to turn storm chasing into a paid profession, the best route is to become a meteorologist. Meteorologists delve into the study of weather phenomena and often get paid by research labs or universities to chase storms for the sake of scientific research. Your passion could lead to a rewarding career that contributes to our understanding of the world. Keep chasing your dreams!
