Today's Outlook Map - Alberta Storms Return

Southern Alberta is already seeing supercells develop along the foothills once again today and these will slowly move east. Severe thunderstorm warnings have been issued from Rocky Mountain House to Red Deer and watches continue further south from there. Manitoba may get a brief severe thunderstorm later in the day or evening but contained mainly to the far southeast pushing into Ontario tonight. Saskatchewan and most of Manitoba will be clear of any storms until tomorrow. Storms may become fairly widespread on Friday throughout southern Saskatchewan so we will have to monitor to see where things go overnight tonight.

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 playing non-violent games like Forza and FIFA.

Thanks for all the likes, shares, comments and encouragement. Stay safe and enjoy the weather!
