HOLY TORNADIC ACTION

There are some seriously crazy looking cells all over the Canadian Prairies this evening. No major cities are threatened at this time but there is more than one stationary type thunderstorms out there. Those are the worst kind. The biggest one is just hovering around the SASK/MAN border in south-east Saskatchewan. Heavy downpours and large hail are being reported. The other much smaller cells are in eastern Alberta and western Saskatchewan. They do not appear to be moving which mean they are rotating like crazy at ground level. The Earth does not stop rotating so a patch of cloud that is stuck to the ground must be rotating. The tops are not very big but this is a very dangerous situation. It is very cool here in Saskatoon and seems very stable. Once the sun sets however, these things are going to take-off. WATCH THIS WEATHER!

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!
