Interesting Weather Facts

The Storm Chasing Crew
Twister is a great movie that is both fun and informational. I think that people of all ages can enjoy the action in the movie, but also get a taste of what real storm chasers do. This movie is really able to capture the ferocity of a Tornado, and maybe help people to realize that these are things that need to be respected.
As far as the article relating to the movie, I think the article is interesting but could use a little work in that area. I saw very little of the terms that are defined in Twister. For example, a little more about the levels of the Tornados would be nice. I do remember a few times where they talked about convergence in the movie, however.
The article on this page is full of information and just about the right length. I think it could be tweaked to accommodate the movie more if that is your goal. If you are just giving an example of a storm related movie, than the website is fine the way it is. All in all, I think this is well done, fun, and informational. You certainly can't beat the movie Twister either. Barry's Response
- Thanks Sarah. I thought the film was fun as well. The page really was about identifying and tracking storms on the weather map, (they way meteorologists use vorticity weather map symbols
) and Twister was an example of the fun you can have with this, if so inclined. Search
