No Tornado Evidence

Tornadoes have been reported on CBC, CKOM and Saskatoonhomepage.ca but so far no evidence has been submited. We drove all around that storm for many hours and saw nothing more than pea size hail that lasted for no more than 3 seconds. No damage from Foam Lake to Buchanan to Springside. We saw some good looking clouds but again got fooled into following it going north while there may have been a south-east moving storm that got away on us. When we gave up and started moving south towards Good Spirit Lake, we expected all the lightning to come right over us but we never even caught up to it. Weather radio kicked in too late to tell us what we missed. Photos will be posted later.

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!
