Supercells Tonight In South West Saskatchewan #skstorm

After many excited reports of heavy rain in central Alberta that even resulted in tornado warnings being issued, some very real storms are starting to make their way as forecast into south west Saskatchewan. With echo tops of over 40k feet compared with the 25k foot storms earlier today around Edmonton, there is a very serious risk of damaging winds of up to 100km/hr and hail of golf ball size or 1 inch. Two supercells, one currently over Leader, Saskatchewan and the other much bigger complex of supercells is just south of the US border in Montana about to enter extreme south west areas of Saskatchewan. People need to take immediate safety precautions in the areas warned by Environment Canada and STAY SAFE!

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!
