Today's forecast

Now that the NHL's Stanley Cup Playoffs are pretty much over with, we can all get back into reality with the weather. Something is brewing in the Rocky Mountains and its not Columbian or Jamaican. This has nothing to do with coffee, or does it? I know one thing for sure. It is getting so hot and muggy here in Saskatoon that I am going to have to switch over to slurpees before noon. That is a sure sign of summer. It is very sunny here but clouds are beginning to emerge out of this moist mixture. Not much wind shear here but around the extreme south of Saskatchewan and Alberta, there could be some big storms later today. Most thunderstorms will stay close to the mountains though despite the fact that we have had four days warning of possible thunderstorms for Saskatoon. Now that the day has arrived the forecast has magically changed to sunny skies. I'm going to keep one or of my Firefox tabs open to the weather today either way. I bet someone somewhere will see something. They always do! Thanks for participating in the human race!

Don't forget to criticize my forecast map, its back again but like most things, it needs some work...

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!
