Early Morning Storm Front with Pink Shelf and Roll Cloud



Early Morning Shelf Cloud by Jared Mysko on 500px.com
5:04 am, June 9, 2017 - A powerful nocturnal thunderstorm arrived in Regina, bringing a pink shelf and 3 sets of roll clouds. The forecast verified and I luckily woke up just in time to chase it by mountain bike only a few blocks from home. I quickly snapped a few photos in front of the Shoppers Drug Mart and then raced down to the shores of Wascana Lake. Quickly realizing time was running out, I manages one decent photo and headed back. A few more photos and an attempted timelapse did not work out as well since it got dark fast but I did see a couple of intense CG lightning strikes right downtown. After posting photos on Twitter, the Internet took over. I made a Twitter "Moment" to recap the excitement here:

Tornado at Three Hills, Alberta - June 2, 2017 - Time Lapse





Social media exploded with activity just after 5pm Alberta time today as this tornado was spotted near Three Hills, north east of Calgary. Earlier in the day, a major hail storm hit Saskatoon and most of southern Manitoba was breaking day time high temps with a growing supercell size thunderstorm that is still sweeping across that province. Storm season is fully underway now and it is expected to be a busy one with already multi-day events becoming the norm. Next big system could hit Monday in BC/Alberta and Saskatchewan on Tuesday. Stay tuned for more updates and be sure to follow us on Facebook where posts will be most frequent.

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!
