About Higgins Storm Chasing

10404232_866323966796725_6271145077741754793_nHiggins Storm Chasing developed as a childhood obsession when Jeff Higgins was 8 years old. He was fascinated by weather and started chasing storms at a very young age. In his early 20’s the internet connected him with other storm chasing friends across South East QLD and in 2010 the website was started where he shared thunderstorm photos.
By September 2011 the Facebook Page was born which has now grown to a very large fan base of 1 million members.
In September 2015 dreams come true by leaving our existing careers to start our very own subscription based private weather forecasting service. 
Through various platforms we offer accurate weather forecasts, maps, videos, updates, warnings, emergency alerts and live coverage right across Australia.

Now in our 6th year of small business operation we developed a company – We Chase PTY LTD.

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 offers a high level of customer service with outstanding community support both online and at a personal level. However, we do not tolerate trolls, bullies or people with nothing nice to say… Life is too short! 

We are proudly Australian owned and support local.

Meet the team!
