this year. The month of July has convinced me that I have lost the
battle for my computer and my house. I simply must work independently
towards next year and the years ahead. Lots of people still think I
can chase storms but I have music videos to produce, graphic designs
to work on, web-sites to build, groceries to stock and most
importantly, families to build. The weather will always be there and
it is not getting any hotter than it ever was. There is nothing to
worry about. I bet there will be a big storm tomorrow or tonight
somewhere but it really doesn't matter that much. Eat some spicy food,
stay out of the water and avoid heat stroke. Keep moving and be happy.
People that drive gas powered vehicles are bordering on breaking
environmental laws. Get a bike and ride it. In the city you can get
places just as fast or faster. The biggest storms will always be
outside of the cities. We are all very lucky. Thank God.

There is a few more tornado videos being posted on the Internet and the main one is being spammed and distorted around like nothing else on Earth at this time. The weather looks calm for today. My manager pretty much took over today and I had to leave the house so I guess she wants me to rest from working on the computer. I had to post one more video that I just found...

More rain for Saskatoon at this hour but clouds are convecting so downpours are possible. There are Severe Thunderstorm Watches in Alberta and Manitoba. It is unlikely that there is enough heat to cause any ugly twisters like what we have all seen on TV and YouTube. It does look like an inland cyclone on radar so watch out for dumps of hail or sleet. It feels cold enough here in Saskatoon.

Today we have tornado watches all over southern Saskatchewan at this time. Also, the Prairie and Arctic Storm Prediction Centre has issued a HIGH RISK for parts of south-east Saskatchewan. It is going to be a long day....

Rotating cell heading towards Saskatoon...
There are several big thunderstorms in south-east
Saskatchewan at this hour. An unwarned cell is
rotating its way across the Alberta border at this
time. This may need some attention...meanwhile
Yorkton is about to get nailed by a major storm.

There was a tornado warning briefly this afternoon for areas just south of Edmonton and watches are up for most of central Alberta and areas around Swift Current, Saskatchewan. Clouds are still building and converging so there could still be a lot of severe weather to come. Heavy rains behind the main system may bring some flooding so this is one serious weather day to keep an eye on for sure.
Don't forget to criticize my forecast map, its back again but like most things, it needs some work...

I've added the new Canadian Prairie Thunderstorm Map to a Google Sketch-up project and converted it into a flash video on YouTube and MySpace and others today. This as many other things are, is a work in progress. The map itself looks pretty good for now but the Sketch-up file needs some work. This will look better with more practice but so far it is good enough for YouTube.
As far as the forecast goes, it doesn't look like a major system coming across the prairies and it has been pretty calm around here lately. There is a risk of thunderstorms becoming severe over parts of Saskatchewan and Manitoba for Monday. I'll take a closer look at this in the morning.
The weather pages have been updated with the new map as well.

The clouds look dangerous for this time of the day moving fast and with much moisture. Looking at CAP/CONUS, the wind speed is at maximum for 850 mb, instability is strong, temperatures are warm and humid. Wind is not the strongest, though but the forecast says a drop in temperatures and a south wind will change to westerly gusts of up to 60km/hr this afternoon with "rain". I predict a thunderstorm and a strong one at that. If anything, it could be an opportunity to get get some nice shots of thunderheads forming today. Maybe I'm just excited, I think I will go for a walk to a random coffee shop somewhere, most likely somewhere quiet with a view...hmmm.
I'll check back in at 11am. or maybe 10...

Re-post after theft:
"Tornadoes are killing people
I will be very blunt. I have been given another several prior warnings. This reminds me of the days leading up to 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, times 100. Look at the tornado death numbers. May has only just begun and this has already been the worst year ever. The National Weather Service has had to update the fujita scale for this year. They have added an "E" to the scale for Extreme. So the worst type of tornado would now be referred to as an EF-5. All I can say for now, is watch the weather.
3pm update, High Risk is spitting out more deadly tornadoes in the USA... smoke em out... http://www.youtube.com/saskatoonscanner

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.
