Updated 30-yr tornado database including all confirmed and probable tornadoes between 1980 and 2009. The red circle shows one area where under-reporting is expected to be significant due to very low population density. From Sills, D. (Environment Canada) et. al (2012)

Slight Chance Of Severe Thunderstorms Tonight (New Map)


Minimal at best but there does appear to be a slight risk of severe weather in south west parts of the Canadian Prairies tonight. Severe thunderstorm watches are now active further south in Montana and Idaho and this system is expected to make its way into Canada over night. Wind warnings are up for Cypress Hills areas with expected 100km/hr wind gusts possible tonight and into Tuesday morning. Heavy rains are possible as storms track across southern Alberta and Saskatchewan. Most of southern Saskatchewan are enjoying high temperatures of 29 to 30 Celsius from Moose Jaw to Regina, Weyburn and Estevan.

If anything, its a good chance to dust off the map for the first time in 2013!

Water Outlet Wascana Creek 8 Day Timelapse

Flood Watch 2013-05-05 (Geo-Tagged)


Click the photo above to see the map and all 63 geo-tagged photos from around the Regina Wascana flood zone. Below are some of the most significant shots of the day. Due to the early opening of the flood gates, areas downstream are much higher now compared to the lake relative to 2011 flood levels.

Video will be processed overnight and another trip around the lake before sundown will give a good indication of how fast things are developing with temperatures now over 20C.

Water is starting to jump onto the path in some areas of Wascana Lake today.

I will make a full post when I get back, heading to the creek now to shoot footage. Reporting from the Saskatchewan Legislature ,

About Me

Storm & Wildlife Photographer.
NON-PROFIT Volunteer Storm Caster

Retail Marketing Team - Hudson's Bay Company

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!
