This Week's Outlook

The next two days will be relatively quiet for storms across most of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. After the sun goes down on Wednesday night, everything will begin to change. Hot humid air will take over from the fairly cool weather of the past few days. Storms will erupt in north central Alberta, well east of the foothills and quickly take hold in southern Saskatchewan overnight and into Thursday morning. This will set up a string of several days with great potential for widespread supercell thunderstorms and tornadoes. The main risk areas will be the corridor from Lloydminster to North Battleford, through Saskatoon, Regina and Yorkton with the most significant potential in the Estevan/Brandon/Yorkton triangle of south east Saskatchewan/south west Manitoba. Stay tuned for updates as forecast models often shift and the situation can increase or lessen as the days progress.

About Me

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!
