Regina Thunderstorm - June 18, 2011

UPDATE:







Many tree branches were knocked down after a heavy rain storm that
brought flash flooding and high winds to the city of Regina,
Saskatchewan.


Wascana Lake has flooding over its banks again today after yesterday's
heavy rainfall and today it rose even more after this little
thundershower. Pea size hail landed at our house to motivate me to
ride into the park for a photo session and I was glad that I did.
Capturing some good thunder rumbles and cloud formations. One large
tree branch was down in the park but that might have happened earlier
as the winds were not much of a factor this afternoon. Gusts were much
stronger yesterday after approximately 7 cm of rain fell on the city
and most of southern Saskatchewan. Flooding is now becoming an issue
once again as areas in south eastern Saskatchewan got soaked over
already drenched farm land. I included a snapshot of me and my 'storm
chasing vehicle' in front of the Wascana Lake and Saskatchewan
Legislature.

don't often enhance photos unless they really need it.

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!
