Today's Risk Map - Cold Core Funnels Possible For Southern Manitoba

Conditions today in southern Manitoba are similar, yet slightly weaker as yesterdays tornadofest in west central Saskatchewan. Cold core funnels and weak tornadoes may be spotted in areas of the interlakes region of southern Manitoba. From Dauphin to Brandon, 300mb vorticity is off the charts at maximum strength but CAPEs are low with little heating available for major storms. Very concentrated localised tornadoes could occur but hail may be pea sized and downpours of rain brief if any.

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!
