Storms Developing In South West Saskatchewan

Severe thunderstorm warnings and watches have been issued for areas of Swift Current, Cypress Hills regions in south west Saskatchewan this evening. Wind gusts could top 100km/hr with these thunderstorms and could last well into the evening or overnight. Moving east at 30km/hr, storms are expected to stay south of the Trans Canada Highway affecting extreme southern parts of Saskatchewan tonight.

There is a chance of storms again tomorrow but nothing major as surface winds are marginal, deep moisture pool is lacking and heat is not extreme in any areas.

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!
