FIREnado!!🔥🌪🤯 This wild video comes from the Tennant Fire that continues to burn in Northern California.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This fire tornado is also called a fire whirl, it is defined as a “spinning vortex column of ascending hot air and gases rising from a fire and carrying aloft smoke, debris and flame.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They can range in size from less than a foot to more than 500 feet in diameter, and large fire whirls can be as intense as a small tornado.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This fire whirl was so intense, its rotation was detected on radar by the National Weather Service! 😳

Had a blast chatting about tornadoes with Mason’s grade 5 class! 🎤🌪👍🏼
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It was a privilege to present to such an engaged and enthusiastic audience, the questions were non-stop and I may have walked out recruiting a few storm chasers.😉
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Feel very fortunate to be able to share my passion for weather with others. 🙌🏼

This sky! ...unreal.🤯☁️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Epic mammatus clouds we captured storm chasing last week in Saskatchewan.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We could see the bubbles forming above as we drove, but when we stepped out and saw the full sky, we were speechless.

So happy. I love storm chasing with every ounce of my being. 💯🌪
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From the preparation, waiting and forecasting, to the road trip, chase and time with friends.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But my favorite part? Getting up close and personal with mother nature at some her wildest and most unique moments. Being there to feel the electricity in the storm, hear the winds rushing into these monster supercells and the roar of the thunder, and then when you get to see the incredible structures it creates…. there’s nothin that compares.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These storms are powerfully beautiful and they captivate me every time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Storm chasing last week we captured this beautiful mothership near Horizon, Saskatchewan.

Today >> we are storm chasing southern Saskatchewan.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Forecasts are expecting large supercell storms capable of producing tornadoes and large hail.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The forecasts included with this post are sourced from The Weather Network, ECCC and the SPC.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Southern Saskatchewan and neighbouring Manitoba should be watchful of the skies, as this system has the right ingredients for some potentially very severe thunderstorms, sparking as early as the morning in some areas and moving east through the overnight.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Areas near the U.S. border, will be at the greatest risk of turning severe, and where severe storms do spark up, forecasters say there's a real threat of one or two tornados as supercells are possible. This may also include large hail and strong winds.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If in these areas being discussed, please stay weather aware today and have an area for shelter in mind.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We will continue to update on weather developments throughout the day.
