Some people blame the extreme weather changes on geoengineering gone not so well. The main purpose of it is to reduce global warming by spraying the atmosphere with nanoparticles of Aluminum and other elements. Some of you might have seen the skies with long white clouds called chemtrails (not contrails made by plane exhaust) criss-crossing each other and remaining for hours without dissipating. Hmmm, I wonder...

'The same trend has been observed in Saskatchewan and Alberta where the number of intense tornados per year has generally dropped since 1920.'



According to this article,the Province of Alberta, is actually getting less Tornadoes, now,compared to years ago.

This article was written in 1985 about weather pattern from 1880-1960. It is too old an article to be a useful for our current world situation.

Using tornadoes as one of the main indicator for severe weather pattern is not accurate. From the article, Climate Progress -http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2013/05/21/2040221/tornadoes-extreme-weather-and-climate-change-revisited/

"1.When discussing extreme weather and climate, tornadoes should not be conflated with the other extreme weather events for which the connection is considerably more straightforward and better documented, including deluges, droughts, and heat waves.

2.Just because the tornado-warming link is more tenuous doesn’t mean that the subject of global warming should be avoided entirely when talking about tornadoes."

There is a major difference though in tornado frequency if you check it out between now and before.



1920-1930:

Record year for 1927 when there was 40 Tornadoes in Alberta.Now we're only getting as much as Five Tornadoes on average per year in Alberta.

Isn't it also true that Scientists predicted that an Ice Age was coming during the 1970's

Now their saying that Global Warming is the new threat.






IMO,it's all a farce.

IMO the weather that has been happening in AB this year is a result of the last 40 years of tree removal from the north. Have you ever been to north of Mariana lakes?It is virtually a desert up there. By creating a artificial desert in a historically colder area it has had serious effects on the weather patterns of said area. In 2001 I saw it rain snow hail and sleet in a matter of 15 min in the middle of February. 45 minutes north of Ft Mcmurray. Don't tell me climate change isn't a real thing.

Conditions are favourable for strong rotating storms which may produce tornadoes.

Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms with the potential to produce tornadoes.

These severe thunderstorms will also have the potential to produce very large hail..Flooding rain..Deadly lightning and powerful winds. Use this time to secure outdoor property and to ensure family members and co-workers are prepared to take action should the severe weather approach.

Environment Canada continues to monitor the situation closely for severe thunderstorm development and possible tornado warnings. Please continue to monitor your local media or weatheradio for further updates.

Should severe weather approach or if you feel threatened do not wait for warnings to take action..Take shelter immediately.

Should you spot a funnel cloud or tornado...And only if it is safe to do so...You can call 1-800-239-0484 to report your sighting. Please note this phone number is for reporting severe weather only

Thunderstorms are developing over Western Alberta. Some of these thunderstorms are expected to become severe with the main severe weather threat being large hail and strong winds. The watch area may be expanded eastward later in the day depending on how the thunderstorms evolve.


Hope everyone stays safe down there and prepares for the worst.

It's funny how many people buy one after having to clean up a basement without one.

Home Depot has ones that go on for 50 bucks, might not be the best but it's better than nothing.

A warm and humid air mass has created the potential for severe thunderstorms in Central Alberta this afternoon and this evening. Thunderstorms are developing along the higher terrain in west Central Alberta and near a low pressure center to the east of the capital. The main threats with these storms will be heavy rain, large hail and strong wind gusts. Thunderstorms developing east and southeast of Edmonton towards the Saskatchewan border could have the potential to produce a tornado
