As Canadians we talk about the weather relentlessly, I just talk about it a little more! I hope to provide useful information to my family, friends and all those who simply enjoy talking about the weather. While I try to include information of interest from all over North America, my primary region of concern is the St. Lawrence Valley of Quebec, Ontario, and New York, as well as our neighbouring regions. This Blog is dedicated to my late father for inspiring my interest in weather.

Prairie tornado threat
Strong storms southwest of Moose Jaw Sunday night. (TornadoHunter.ca)
Strong thunderstorms are developing across southern Saskatchewan tonight. Severe thunderstorm warnings and watches stretch along the Trans Canada Highway north and south to the US border. A tornado warning was in effect for the R.M. of Chaplin, west of Moose Jaw but has since been lowered. Strong storms are also affecting the Gravelbourg and Shamrock area northeast towards Moose Jaw. Hail, high winds and isolated tornadoes remain a threat through the evening.
