Busy Week, Baby Storms

As the long term forecast models came out last night suggesting an outbreak next week, we were treated to a fiesta of pop up thunder showers, funnel clouds and small hail this week in Regina, topped off with a beautiful display of a thunderstorm sunset that took on the appearance of a pyramid. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday next week could be active from Alberta to Saskatchewan. The forecast will be updated as the time gets closer. Damaging Supercellular TwisterStorms will be on the menu next week. Goodbye spring, hello summer. 

Hail Storm Hits Regina!

Funnel Cloud Over 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 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!
