Montana Now

Hail in Montana is getting huge! Largest report now at 2.75 inches, blown out wind-shields and storms continue to head north towards Alberta/Sw Saskatchewan. Worst of it seems to be heading on a line towards Val Marie which could put it close to Moose Jaw much later, say between 11 and midnight. This monster storm is just now appearing on EC radar and is mighty impressive on echo tops. It should die out before making it to Regina but the forecast for tomorrow is ominous with thunderstorms and 80k/hr wind gusts at noon.

About Me

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!
