This pictorial begins with a chilly June morning, Wednesday,
June 15th, as the first picture in the sequence shows the morning sky around 10:00
with whispy cirrus and alto stratus clouds indicating some stong winds aloft. Strong
winds are almost always the result of what weather men like to refer to as a "high
gradient." On their weather maps, if a very strong low pressure area and a strong
high pressure area are up against one another there will be some conflict where they
encounter one another, but this is magnified significantly when a high pressure ridge
butts up against a low pressure trough in between the two weather masses will
be strong winds and if the low carries with it lots of moisture, there will develop
a frontal system which in the summer, will take the form of a line of thunder showers.
By later afternoon Regina and most of the southern portion of the province
was feeling the affects of a frontal system and there were showers throughout the
The rainbow images were taken from the Golden Mile Mall in South Regina
while the fifth picture was taken on Albert Street looking west past Taylor
The sixth picture is at the Northgate Mall and from there on the images are
along the highway between the edge of Regina and Dafoe, where darkness came.
These pictures were taken by Judy Shire and me using three different cameras,
an HP 315, a Canaon Optura 20 and a Canon A95.
