Snow Piling Up Quickly in Saskatoon

The second major snowfall in a week has begun here in Saskatoon and it looks like this one is going to be a doozie! After between 15 and 20 cm earlier this week, city crews had just got some of the main roads reletively clear as the next batch began to fall. Another 15 cm is forecast by Sunday morning. Driving in the city is difficult, dangerous and not recommended. Highways will most likely be closed tonight. Pizza delivery is still going at TJ's, so stay home and relax tonight!

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!
