Tornado Risk Today: East Central Alberta

Conditions have increased the threat of very severe weather today, especially in east central Alberta where a risk of strong tornadoes exists. Storms will generally be larger, more powerful than yesterday due to the increase in temperatures and moisture. Storm motion will be very slow once again this evening as cells will be near stationary as the system creeps slightly east from the action last night. Tomorrow the shift will be much greater as it moves into parts of Saskatchewan. A full fledged moderate risk could be issued along the Saskatchewan/Montana border tomorrow as conditions gain even more energy. The main cliff hanger will be Wednesday evening as temperatures drop with the passing storms in southern Saskatchewan but then increases dramatically again Friday night in southern Manitoba. In fact, there is no foreseeable end to this pattern so storm season on the Canadian Prairies is now fully under way and will continue full strength until the end of the current cycle beginning of July.

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!
