Today, Calgary residents witnessed a morning sky whose incoming clouds were filled with Doppler ripples and signs of electromagnetic signature. A time lapse of our sky can be viewed here. A map of all sky time lapse videos can be viewed here, in which Washington and Oregon state can be accessed on the right side of that page.
We have tracked this cloud system originating precisely from NEXRAD stations in Washington and Oregon, and have documented its movement using radar and satellite animation. The full playlist of all events can be seen here. In the satellite animation, pay close attention to where the tapering plume-shaped clouds originate from in Oregon and Washington, only to be later pushed into Alberta using Canadian Doppler Stations.see clouds being generated as plumes in Oregon and Washington NEXRAD Stations, which are then driven north east into British Columbia, with the help of Canada's Doppler stations co-operating to bring this cloud system into Alberta. Most of the moisture and clouds are being driven north east from the Spokane, WA Station towards the Vernon Doppler station to end up in Alberta and eventually Calgary.
Above: The left image shows specific NEXRAD Stations in the U.S. that are of particular interest to us, because they are involved in generating the strange plume-shaped clouds that are pushed north into Canada. The right image shows the Canadian Doppler stations working in conjunction to further drive this moisture north into British Columbia and eventually Alberta.

|Above: Calgary's sky, facing north. We see the electromagnetic ripples as signs that a Doppler station has left its mark on these clouds. This is the signature of electromagnetic-induced clouds. All morning photos can be viewed here.|
