Alberta Rainbow


Here's is a shot of the rainbow we saw along the Alberta/Saskatchewan border on Tuesday evening. We didn't see any hail but there was some pretty intense lightning every minute or so. Moderate to heavy rain and some wind gusts that brought some tree branches onto the highway around Biggar later at night. This system should be pretty powerful tommorrow as it is dropping a lot of rain in western Saskatchewan right now. Saskatoon might get a downpour with lightning over the next few hours, overnight.

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!
