Storms Today - Central Saskatchewan - Southern Ontario

Two places of interest today. Central Saskatchewan and southern Ontario should get an honorable mention. The huge storms that finally left Manitoba yesterday are now re-organizing in the same hot air just further south and intesified by the surrounding lakes. However, as usual with Ontario storms, the wind shear is not as good there and with all the trees and buildings, it has to be some of the worst areas to chase storms in Canada. Back in Saskatchewan however, our skies are cooking up right now and my cam shows the soupy looking clouds in the north with layers and really nice convective (pop-corn) clouds forming all over the place. I think we actually have way too much moisture and unless it clears out and heats up, storms will be mild out here today. Ontario is going to see some major light shows tonight though.

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!
