Tornadic Supercell Lightning Machine

July 13th was a day to remember, still working on footage from this incredibly photogenic supercell that produced tornadoes (and "plow winds"?!) from the Kindersley to Eston to Craven areas of west central Saskatchewan. Here is a couple videos of "most" of the footage:

Weekend Outlook

#skstorm #abstorm Weekend Outlook:
There is a chance of non-severe thundershowers over southern Saskatchewan on Friday afternoon. More significantly, a trend of wet weather begins over dry grain belt areas which will knock down the risk of fire and provide much needed moisture to farmers. On Sunday, the first real chance of super cellular thunderstorm activity will be present in southern Alberta. This mean severe thunderstorm watches, the first severe weather outlook map and giddy storm starved chasers may suddenly appear out of their hibernation.
Note: There is a 1% or non-zero chance of isolated tornadic spin ups over south western Saskatchewan Friday afternoon. Highly unlikely to be of any significance but would not be right to miss mentioning.
Video included is the NAM Nest forecast model for 6am Friday to 6am Saturday, first clip is Simulated Reflectivity, second clip is Significant Tornado Index.
