New Video of Saskatoon Snowstorm

Saskatoon got left out of the last batch of snow but we are getting some now. Snow has been falling pretty much all day and continues at this hour. Only 2 centimetres is forecast for the city by midnight tonight but we may have already have met that mark. Traffic moved very slowly today at rush hour as the snow made the roads very slippery. We got a short video clip from around 5pm today downtown.

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!
