Cold Weather Returns

Saskatoon's temperature returned to normal for January briefly this evening when it hit -23C at 9pm. The temperature was forecast to go down to -18C tonight but so far it seems to be getting a bit colder. Plugging your vehicle in tonight might make things easier for people going out on what is normally the busiest day of the month tommorrow in Saskatoon, "Child Tax Cheque Day". The normal low temperature is -23C for today and if you are not used to the cold, don't forget that in 1943 it hit -47C on this day. Global warming returns on Monday with more outrageous temperature forecasts alleged to be +2 on Monday.

About Me

Kayaking, bird watching, fishing and wildlife photography are my summer hobbies when waiting for storms. See my adventures on YouTube!

I build a daily map of storm risk for the Canadian Prairies to accomplish two things. One, translate the complications of the meteorologists into something simple that the public can understand clearly. Two, become a buffer on social media to either raise the alarm and calm the masses depending on the level of hype.

Storm chasing is limited nowadays to a few photo ops by the lake at Wascana in Regina or up north at Pratt. Generally, I spend more time nowcasting for chasers around Saskatchewan which saves on gas and keeps me safe in my studio/bunker.

Once storm season comes to an end in August, gaming season then begins. Find me on Twitch.com/jaredmysko playing non-violent games like Forza and FIFA.

Thanks for all the likes, shares, comments and encouragement. Stay safe and enjoy the weather!
