Tornado Risk Today - North Dakota/Manitoba

As cool heavy rain dumps on the city of Regina, temperatures are reaching the 90s F in South Dakota. In between, the atmosphere is destabilising and the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma is giving a 2% to 5% chance of tornadoes in central North Dakota all the way up to the Manitoba border. Storms are not likely to cross into Canada unless conditions change but today's Canadian Prairie Storms Map has been updated to reflect the possible danger area.

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!
