The Storm Highway Storm Tracking Vehicle

January 2005 - After nearly 5 years and 194,000 miles of service, the Storm Highway Ford Ranger truck has been retired. Replacing the Ranger is a brand-new 2005 Ford Freestyle SUV/wagon crossover.

Our vehicles have traveled tens of thousands of miles every year to bring back the pictures and video you see on the Storm Highway web site. Just as the Ranger was, the new Freestyle is a mobile weather observatory and communications center - equipped with instrumentation for measuring temperature and wind speed, computer-based realtime doppler radar and warning info via satellite, wireless internet, a dash-mounted video camera, scanner, CB radio, and cell phone. We have the ability to feed video to television networks directly from the vehicle from any major city or at any location where internet access is available.

Look for the Storm Highway car on the road on stormy days in West Virginia and wherever a big weather story is taking shape....from Lubbock, Texas to Raleigh, North Carolina and beyond. Locally, the car can be seen on filming assignments for The Weather Channel during any active weather (rain, snow, fog).
