Northwest Flow Brings a Microburst - Heatwave Incoming/Storms To Follow July 2nd

June 25th, 2021 

Watch towards the end as incoming rain send dusts into the air over downtown Regina. I was filming on the south shore of Wascana in front of the Legislature, the downtown core is the bank of lights on the right side of the horizon. A kayaker happened to have parked right there and we had a nice chat as he docked for the night. Rain was quite steady and moderate to light with no flooding seen on the way home afterwards. 

Looking ahead to July, a heat wave from California to British Columbia will eventually make its way over the mountains and onto the prairies. We are looking at July 2nd and 3rd as the next chance to see big time thunderstorms on the Canadian Prairies.

Early morning Storm Discussion : Tornadoes Today!

Good morning!
It is unusually dark out in Regina this morning, expecting things to clear up fast near noon with big storms to the west. Here is some early morning discussion before official things get issued:
Looking at the difference between the Hrrr and NAM Nest forecast models, the Hrrr seems to be confirming current radar and if it continues we will see much stronger storms to our west, Moose Jaw is going to be flooded (4 inches/10cm) Regina (1 inch/3cm).
Winds over 150km/hr at the Montana border will be pushing things towards us, new model runs keep suggesting tornadoes will be possible around Old Wives Lake, likely to the south and east of there after 5pm... expecting tornado watches any second..
