In Nebraska, our existence is punctuated each spring by severe weather. Hidden in the fury of a spring storm is an intense beauty that is quickly becoming a fascination with people in the form of storm chasing.

McGinnis will feature photos he has taken as he chased storms along side the Discovery Channel’s “Storm Chasers” over the last several years. Ryan will talk about his experiences and how he creates the stunning images that have received national acclaim for their clarity and beauty.

Boughton will talk about severe weather from the forecasting side and will speak about his experience as a weather forecaster and introduce the Central Nebraska Storm Chasing Team that will be working with NTV this storm season.
