Freezing Rain or Intense Snowfall?

A very large area of intense precipitation has developed over southwestern Saskatchewan this afternoon and threatens to engulf most of southern Saskatchewan this evening. Accumulation amounts are not expected to be very high but dangerous driving conditions are pretty much guaranteed. Convective elements are showing up on radar as some areas may get thunderstorm type action with this system. All major centres will be affected as the area of precipitation is hundreds of kilometres wide. Currently, freezing rain warnings are active for the Swift Current and Kindersley regions

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!
