Regina Snowstorm - January 10-11, 2013

Here a playlist of video footage of the snowstorm that hit Regina this week: Heavy snowfall warnings were upgraded to winter storm warnings for Regina and both Moose Jaw and Winnipeg got Blizzard Warnings on January 10th as it became clear that a major storm was beginning to affect the prairie provinces. After a foot or 30cm of snow fell, not including totals much higher in drifts, extreme temperatures dropped to -29C on Saturday, January 12 with the windchill reaching -40C in the city of Regina.

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 the lake at Wascana in Regina or up north at Pratt. Generally, I spend more time nowcasting for chasers around Saskatchewan which saves on gas and keeps me safe in my studio/bunker.

Once storm season comes to an end in August, gaming season then begins. Find me on Twitch.com/jaredmysko playing non-violent games like Forza and FIFA.

Thanks for all the likes, shares, comments and encouragement. Stay safe and enjoy the weather!
