Lightning Over The Lake

It took nearly 200 photos, a lot of patience waiting for the storm and convincing myself that is wasn't done yet as the wind stopped and lightning flashes became very infrequent but here is the results:

North Dakota Perfect Tornado Yesterday

The footage of this tornado is amazing, lucky no one was killed but ABC news reports 9 injured as this tornado destroyed an oil camp in North Dakota May 26, 2014

Language and stupidity warning!

Dangerous Situation! #WednesdayNight

Extreme Southern Saskatchewan, including Assiniboine, Weyburn and Estevan Regions and All of Eastern Montana! 


Severe weather models are pointing to a major system exploding with tornadic supercells over western Montana Wednesday afternoon and moving into extreme southern Saskatchewan into the evening. These damaging storms will move into southern Manitoba and south eastern Saskatchewan on Thursday, making this a 2 day severe weather event. If in these areas, make plans now for strong storms and possible tornadoes, power outages, flash flooding, large hail and damaging winds.  

Here are some of the images of the latest forecast models, GFS and NAM, both seeming to suggest a lot of mixing with tons of wind shear, maximum ehi index and supercell composites, rain/precip just to the north. City of Regina could see flash flooding overnight with power outages all night Wednesday into Thursday.

GFS wind 850 9pm

NAM ehi index 9pm

GFS precip 9pm

NAM precip midnight

GFS supercell 9pm

NAM supercell 9pm

Stay safe, stay tuned and be prepared! 

More updates as they come in...

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.

There are two seasons in my world, storm season and gaming season. April and September separate the two. I play FIFA, World Of Warships and Battlefield 1 with live streams on Ask me about sports, I am a fan and knowledge base of all things FIFA, Premier League, CFL and NFL (yes its all football). 

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