3 Day Outbreak

This evening major storms have begun in southern Alberta and will continue to crawl across the prairies over the next 3 days. Southern Alberta tonight, Alberta and western Saskatchewan on Tuesday and most of southern Saskatchewan will see serious severe weather on Wednesday. Forecast models suggest this could be a significant event on Wednesday especially as temperatures rise and the system moves towards the wet zones of Saskatchewan. Many grid roads and most farm fields are now flooded in areas of central and north central Saskatchewan. The heat in the south west will mix with these conditions and likely fire up some very big storms this week.

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 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!
