After a long delay, up and away. Next stop Regina. Cutting it close, but potential a big day ahead in southern Saskatchewan!

Working on target (since my timing is tight). Current thinking is to drop south from Regina on Hwy 6 toward Pangman, then head west on 13 through Omega. From there can reanalyze and continue south or west. At the moment I’m favoring a target a little further west or southwest of Horizon, for initiation around Rockglen or Willow Bunch… but that will be refined as I get moving! (Note: I’m nervous about cloud cover from this morning’s convection and getting the stabilization we’ll need, but determined to remain cautiously optimistic! Will be chasing safe and conservative today.

Distant updrafts to my south, likely the little cells by Brainerd MN
