First snowfall of the season! - November 1, 2017





Significant snow fell overnight in Regina and continues to accumulate. Up to 10 cm is expected in southern Saskatchewan by the end of the week. Much higher amounts in western Saskatchewan as areas in the central prairies could see well over a foot or 30 cm by the weekend. Stay tuned for updates on Canadian Prairie Storm Facebook Page and be sure to check the highway hotline before trying out the highways. RCMP are already reporting "very treacherous conditions".

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!
