Tornado Watch

I am currently monitoring a situation in south-west Saskatchewan that most likely will bring Saskatoon some real thunderstorm action later tonight. A tornado watch has been issued with a severe thunderstorm warning for Maple Creek and Cypress Hills. Storms are moving very fast at 50km/hr in a north-east direction. Golf ball size hail and 100km/hr wind gusts have been reported with these storms. Large thunderstorms are now hitting heights of 45 000 feet along the Alberta/Saskatchewan from Llyodminister to the US border. The most dangerous storms will be coming from the Swift Current region towards Saskatoon. Environment Canada has a forecast for these storms to arrive by midnight in Saskatoon.

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 Twitch.tv/JaredSkStorm 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!
