New Map in 3-D

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.

Stay tooned to !

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 Wascana Lake in Regina or up north at Pratt Lake. Generally, I spend more time tracking storms from home and sharing forecasts and great footage on Twitter which saves on gas and keeps me safe in my studio/bunker.

There are two seasons in my world, storm season and gaming season. April and September separate the two. I play FIFA, Sea Of Thieves and Fortnite with live streams on Ask me about sports, I am a fan and knowledge base of all things FIFA, Premier League, CFL and NFL (yes its all football). 

Thanks for all the likes, shares, comments and encouragement. Stay safe and enjoy the weather!
