Slight Chance Of Severe Thunderstorms Tonight (New Map)


Minimal at best but there does appear to be a slight risk of severe weather in south west parts of the Canadian Prairies tonight. Severe thunderstorm watches are now active further south in Montana and Idaho and this system is expected to make its way into Canada over night. Wind warnings are up for Cypress Hills areas with expected 100km/hr wind gusts possible tonight and into Tuesday morning. Heavy rains are possible as storms track across southern Alberta and Saskatchewan. Most of southern Saskatchewan are enjoying high temperatures of 29 to 30 Celsius from Moose Jaw to Regina, Weyburn and Estevan.

If anything, its a good chance to dust off the map for the first time in 2013!

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 Twitch.tv/JaredSkStorm 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!
