Incredible Series Of Storms
August 6-7, 2011- Noon to well after midnight
This video starts off fast and ends with a bang!
Coffee at Starbucks in south Regina was quite the experience on this day as clouds quickly merged in front of the shop to form a very ominous looking spectacle.
This cloud moved towards Weyburn, Saskatchewan which prompted Environment Canada to issue tornado warnings as it developed a hook echo about 3 hours later.
Storms developed all around the province and severe thunderstorm warnings were issued almost everywhere except the city of Regina which narrowly escaped any of the damage. Weyburn, unfortunately got hit the hardest with yet another flash flood that raised water levels in that area which has had far more than enough rain this year. That city once again looks like a lake. Large amounts of small hail were reported in many areas, especially south and east of Regina.
The Weather Network picked up one of the clips in this video earlier in the day as clouds here looked nasty.
Later on, after midnight storm cells came together to produce some intense lightning over the city as seen at the end of the video.

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.
