Storm System On The Move - [New Map]

After several days of storms staying put in the mountains and foothills of Alberta, the system finally moved on  into Saskatchewan this morning. Being pushed by extreme heat in the west, Val Marie currently sits at a cozy 35C while Regina is right in the humidity soup at 23C. Extreme instability is now present over eastern Saskatchewan and storm cells the north are beginning to emerge. Over the next few hours, watches should be issued and a risk of a tornado is possible between the Yellowhead and Trans Canada highways in eastern Saskatchewan. The cities of Regina and Yorkton are included in this risk however unpredictable weather can be as we get closer to hurricane season in the Atlantic Ocean. Hurricane often suck all of the elements of storm action from Saskatchewan giving us very calm and moderate weather. Today will be different.

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!
