Hi everyone! I’m Nathan Parker, one of the contributors and administrators here at WeatherTogether. From everyone on the WeatherTogether team, I want to say welcome to WeatherTogether, a community in the clouds. I hope you enjoy your time here reading our weather reports and blog articles, and we would all love to have you register for a free account on this site to join the WeatherTogether contributor team and give us weather reports from your neighborhood.
Many of you likely remember me from my time at WeatherBug. I served as a blogger for the WeatherBug Backyard Blog since 2008 and was one of the administrators of the WeatherBug Community since 2009, until it was shut down after the sale of the WeatherBug brand to GroundTruth late last year. I still handle IT consulting for WeatherBug’s former parent company, Earth Networks, and I am still actively involved in the weather community, contributing severe weather content on social media on #ARWX, and I will be regularly blogging about Arkansas weather here. I was also the President/CEO of Mallard Computer, Inc., and WeatherMallard until October of 2017 when I decided to shut down the company to focus on an upcoming PhD program in Systematic Theology. During my time at Mallard Computer and WeatherMallard, I launched WeatherQuack, a weather community blogging platform in which its content will be fully merged under WeatherTogether by the end of 2017. I have also completed a M Div in Biblical Languages from Luther Rice College and Seminary in May of 2017.
I am excited about the future of bringing the team of contributors from the former WeatherBug Community and WeatherQuack under the WeatherTogether family, and I look forward to seeing where this new merge of weather communities takes us. I invite you to come along the journey with us.
Since this is a weather blog, I want to finish this introductory blog post with a brief weather report from the Natural State. It is current 46 degrees (F) on my PWS. A freeze warning is in effect for the entire state of Arkansas through tomorrow. Check out the graphics below for the freeze warning, as well as temperatures across the state (maps courtesy of Baron Threat Net and Earth Networks Sferic Maps).
That wraps it up here! Nathan Parker signing off!
