Tornado Tuesday- Repeat or Ramp Up?

After a nearly stationary lightning storm last night, conditions are setting up for a possible repeat of last Tuesday's tornado in the same area. It seems that Old Wives Lake is becoming less of a fairy tail and more like a true tornado tale! Regina's lightning detector recorded one of the highest numbers of strikes in its history with a peak of 312 strikes per minute and nearly 100000 total strikes at last count. Reed Timmer posted last night that tomorrows models are suggesting that both major cities in Saskatchewan will be at risk to be hit by a powerful long track tornado by Tuesday evening. PSPC said today that the area most at risk will be just east of Moose Jaw and south of the Trans Canada highway sometime before dark. Chasers and spotters are now preparing for another busy day. Stay tuned for updates!

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!
