Severe Thunderstorm Risk Continues In Southern Alberta [Risk Map]

As forecasters yet again predicted thunderstorms for south central Saskatchewan, the weather decided it wasn't finished with Alberta. Yet another round of severe weather crossed the Albertan foothills through Olds and passed Calgary with a target set on Brooks at this hour. After anticipating thunderstorms this afternoon over Regina either late this afternoon or evening, things have shifted so far west that it doesn't seem likely we will hear thunder until maybe late at night if at all in the Queen City. A large mass of cloud cover prevented any heating or convection to occur in southern Saskatchewan while Alberta gets hammered once again by strong thunderstorms.

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!
