This book will take you through the adventures of the extreme weather and skies of Kansas, through the eyes of a storm chaser who traveled there every year since the end of the twentieth century. Stunning landscapes, impressive cloud formations, strong winds, giant hail, flooding, and tornadoes were all encountered on his storm chasing endeavors in this amazing state. See the effects of three air masses-dry air from the Desert Southwest, warm moist air from the Gulf of Mexico states to the southeast, and cold air from Canada to the north-converge on a state that is in the center stage of “Tornado Alley,” causing some of the most interesting and bizarre weather unlike anywhere else on Earth.
