In most parts of the country, spring means warmer temperatures, a new garden, and the start of baseball season. But in the central plains, late spring brings something else -- the start of storm-chasing season. In this segment, live from Norman, Oklahoma, we'll talk about tornadoes and the scientists who study them. What do researchers know about how twisters work -- and what's still to be discovered? Can better information about tornado formation help provide more accurate, earlier warnings of storms? We'll also check in with researchers working on the VORTEX 2 tornado-tracking project, with the start of their tornado-chasing season right around the corner.
