Meteorologist and Tour Guide

Brad NelsonHello weather fanatics! As an avid storm chaser, I have been stalking the Plains for monster thunderstorms and tornadoes for several years and have seen around 54 tornadoes in my lifetime, as well as everything from large hail, lightning, flooding, damaging winds, and incredible thunderstorm features. If you would like to check out my storm chasing website, go to In addition, I have had the opportunity to be a cast member in the reality television show, “Twister Sisters”, which aired on WE TV in the winter of 2007-2008, and as a Weather Consultant for the production of “Tornado Road”, which aired on The Weather Channel in late 2009 and early 2010.

I am a meteorologist for the commercial weather company Telvent DTN and part of the PGA Tour On-Site Meteorologist team, producing forecasts and helping with weather evacuations for various golf tournaments, including the Masters and PGA Championship.

I have been fortunate to be a guide for Silver Lining Tours since 2010, and hope to be able to provide my services for many years to come. It is very rewarding for me to share my knowledge, love, and passion of weather with our guests from all over the world.
