There are many different documents out on the Internet that provide good reference material for people interested in weather. Below are different sites that we have created and links to sites others have created that explain why some things in the weather happen and how some of the equipment that we use to measure the weather works.
Is our weather getting more violent? - An online presentation about how tornadoes and hail have increased with time.
Tornadoes, Severe Thunderstorms, and Other Types of Severe Weather. - An online presentation used at schools by the Severewx.com Team to teach students about severe weather.

Storm Chasing Articles
DISCLAIMER: Remember storm chasing exposes chasers to many hazardous and potentially deadly weather conditions such as lightning, dangerous roads, damaging winds, hail, and flying debris which puts the chaser's life at risk, particularly those who have little or no experience and/or storm structure education. Learning to deal with these is best done by understanding supercells and thunderstorms, and riding with an experienced chaser before attempting to chase on their own. The author of these pages does not encourage storm chasing and is therefore not responsible for any actions as a result of what is seen here!
