Weekend Round up/Serious Situation For Manitoba Today

Great chance for tornadoes today in Manitoba and south. Especially areas in Minnesota as they are under a 10% tornado risk by SPC. At the moment radar indicates a very strong and discrete cell just east of Yorkton, Sk. Severe thunderstorm warnings are posted by Environment Canada already and there are watches up for all three prairie provinces. Danger area to watch is definitely the Foxwarren, MB radar especially Dauphin over the next hour.

In other news, in case you missed it over the weekend. Regina got hit with 115km/hr winds Friday at midnight and clean-up continues today as city crews were on our street picking up the fallen branches and trimming trees. I was out by the lake filming the storm as it came in and also took video of an interview I did for Global news on Saturday morning as well as some lumberjack coverage that afternoon. Here is the highlight video from all the action on Saturday in Regina:

And on Sunday a tornado was filmed in Russia that caused major damage, killed one and injured several others. Here is that video:

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!
