Higgins Storm Chasing started as a childhood obsession when Jeff Higgins was 8 years old. He was fascinated by weather and chased storms from a very young age. In his early 20’s the internet connected him with other like minded weather enthusiasts and storm chasing friends across South East QLD. In 2010 Jeff developed higginsstormchasing.com where he uploaded thunderstorm photos and reports.
During September 2011 the Higgins Storm Chasing Facebook Page was born which has now grown to a very large fan base of over 1 million members.
In September 2015 Jeff pursued his dreams by leaving his long civil construction career to start his very own subscription based private weather forecasting service. At the same time Thomas Hinterdorfer joined the team with his wealth of weather knowledge.
Through our various platforms we offer accurate weather forecasts, maps, videos, updates, warnings, emergency alerts and live coverage right across Australia.
Now in our 7th year of operation Jeff founded a new company called We Chase Pty Ltd which has voluntary administrators and paid staff .
Higgins Storm Chasing is well known to the public, business, news media and government organisations in Queensland and Australia.
We volunteer our time and resources as supporting partners with not-for-profit organisations during natural disasters by raising awareness, relief aid and recovery which is provided directly to affected areas and people within Australia.
Our team provides a high level of customer service with outstanding community support both online and at a personal level. However, we do not tolerate online trolls, bullies or people with nothing nice to say… Life is too short!
We are proudly Australian owned and support local businesses.
