Gordon!!! Potential hurricane bears down on the Mississippi Gulf coast

After covering preseason hockey all weekend I am sick of watching sports, so I am tuning in hurricane coverage instead. Exciting stuff. Mississippi and Alabama’s southern Gulf coast looks to be hit by Tropical Storm Gordon, which could still turn into Hurricane Gordon before it is done. Be glad you are not there today.

Weather report: this place is still cold!!

Hi again, from frozen Canada 🇨🇦. The rumour is that it is spring. Well, if it is, it sure doesn’t look like it or feel like it here on the prairies. It was something like minus-16 Celsius today and it is meant to go down to minus 25 tonight. With the wind chill, it will…

Big Nor’easter blizzard hitting New England as we speak!

Good grief, this is the third big Nor’easter to hit New England in two weeks. I am watching the live “storm watch” blizzard coverage from Boston TV stations right now; the forecasts call for areas of the state of Massachusetts to be buried by up to two feet of snow!! Of course, a major snowstorm…

Heat wave in so. Cal.! 120 degrees coming to Coachella Valley!

It’s summer, and as someone used to being frozen stiff during the extreme pit of winter, I am amused at all the stories of boiling hot weather in these places in the southwest USA that normally are pleasant the whole rest of the year.  According to this report the heat wave hitting Southern California is…

Major winter storm about to hit northeast USA/eastern Canada!! 

The news is that a major winter storm, which the Weather Channel has dubbed Stella, is going to produce a major blizzard and snow dump for the northeast USA including the New York area. Southern Ontario will also get the brunt of it! Meanwhile, out on the Canadian prairie it’s been freaking cold the past…

Like everyone else, I’m staying inside because it is COLD!!!

There is no escape from winter throughout North America, it seems. We are suffering miserable local windchills here on the Canadian prairie approaching minus 40 Celsius!!! In the United States, they are getting winter storms and car-pileup conditions.  Even if you choose to simply hunker down indoors and watch football, you’ll still be reminded of…

Weather update: it’s a lot warmer south of where you are

Uh, just a reminder to snowbirds that you probably need to book your winter sun vacations soon.  For those of you in the frozen North who are increasingly fed up with forecasts that are getting colder by the week, here’s the weather report for sun destinations to cheer you up: for Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo…

Weather report: Matthew could be a hurricane threat to Caribbean

So, I don’t feel like reading about Alicia Machado (Hillary Clinton’s favorite Miss Universe) yet again today. In fact, I don’t feel like reading any news, period. But I need my information fix, so instead I’m going to read the weather report.  Besides, I need to think of places to go to when North America goes…

It is mid-February and we have all officially got the winter blahs!

We are midway through the month of February now, which means we have hit the point on the calendar when everyone in the snow zone is officially fed up with winter!  Of course, everyone in Toronto was moaning about how cold it was for the NBA All-Star Game. As for winter storm news: it looks like…

And now, the weather

Oh, nothing, I simply thought I would put up a link to the Weather Channel for anyone interested in what the forecast might be in any winter getaway vacation destinations. 

Sadly, expecting to be snowed right under around here tomorrow

Weather update: currently I am watching the Winnipeg-Calgary CFL game being played in Calgary in a heap of snow. Regrettably, we are in store for exactly the same thing. Our own area is looking at heavy snow tomorrow.We are looking at possibly 10 cm tomorrow, and northwest SK is under a snowfall warning. Hopefully, it…

Latest hurricane news: Bermuda getting socked by Gonzalo right now

Let us move away from news about diseases and go back to talking weather, shall we? Hurricane Gonzalo is going strong right now and Bermuda is taking a direct hit. Coverage here. Well, I guess this weather news won’t cheer people up, either. Honestly, there is not much cheery news out there right now.

Wild day of tornadoes in Saskatchewan yesterday

If you were wondering what I was up to Saturday, I was being chased by a big storm all the way on the highway to Saskatoon. As it turned out this storm produced some scary tornadoes south of the city.  That was interesting. Hopefully, the weather here will improve and people here can maybe actually enjoy…

Look out North Carolina, Arthur is coming

The question right now is whether Arthur will be a Tropical Storm or a Hurricane when he gets to North Carolina on Thursday. Anyway, the forecasts are here. Happy Fourth of July, folks in the USA. You can have your tropical storms and hurricanes, we have enough problems to deal with here at the moment.

And now, the weather

It has not been a fun last couple of days weather-wise for a lot of people in a lot of places. First of all, there was a big tornado that touched down in Angus, Ontario and damaged 100 homes. Also that day, a bolt of lightning injured people on a golf course in Stouffville, Ontario….

And now, the weather report for this second Wednesday in May

Well, we have had another interesting recent weekend of tornado activity. Nebraska in particular was particularly hard hit on Sunday, so I tuned in some of the storm chasing coverage online. Now, however, we have moved on from live tornado coverage. Instead, we are now getting live fire coverage. Here’s Fox 5 San Diego live…

SNOWED UNDER IN FROZEN SASKATCHEWAN

Yes, the snow has finally arrived. As an aside — no, I have not booked my winter getaway vacation yet, but I probably should start thinking about it.

SNOW WATCH 2013: AHEM. NO SNOW HERE YET

Well, so much for the forecasts. This is what you get when Environment Canada understaffs its Saskatchewan operation. Actually, though, southern Alberta is under a snowfall warning right now. The live cams from Alberta are pretty depressing looking, with these places covered in snow. Well, as far as I am concerned they can have their…

SNOW WATCH 2013: EXPECTING THE WHITE STUFF BY TOMORROW

I hate to be the bearer of bad news for folks in Saskatchewan and Alberta, but I have it on pretty good authority from the weather forecast-type people that we’ll be getting snow by tomorrow.  My area is forecast for a 60 percent chance of flurries. Darn it! Well, having no snow was fun while it…
