Weekly Wrap Up: January 13, 2018 #ARWX

Weekly Wrap Up: January 13, 2018 #ARWX

Welcome to another WeatherTogther Weekly Wrap Up. Overall, temperatures were slightly warmer in Hot Springs this past week than what was forecasted in last week’s 7 Day Forecast (the data for the forecasts come from Earth Networks). Here is a look at temperatures from my Earth Networks weather station in Hot Springs, Arkansas, over the past week.

This week also brought rain for the first time in 2018 to the Natural State. In addition to rain, Thursday evening and Friday morning saw some wintry mixed precipitation and snow fall across  Arkansas, although not enough to form any major accumulation. Here is a look at the rain totals this past week from my CoCoRaHS gauge in Hot Springs, Arkansas, as well as a map of rain totals across the state on January 7 from CoCoRaHS, plus a tweet from me Friday morning with a look at winter radar when the snow arrived in Hot Springs.

There was a beautiful sunset tonight on my Earth Networks HD Camera, and here’s a look at the camera image as well as the current conditions from my weather station in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Here’s also a look at tempeatures across the state from both NWS stations and Earth Networks stations (maps courtesy of Baron Threat Net and Earth Networks Sferic Maps).

Monday evening could see a wintry mix in Hot Springs, as well as snow across parts of North Arkansas. Here’s a look at forecast precipitation and snow accumulation maps for the regional Baron forecast model and WSI RPM model for around 5PM monday showing which parts of the state could see the most snow. The snow accumulations seem light for most of Arkansas and not a major winter event.

Here’s a look at the 7 day extended forecast for Hot Springs, Arkansas. In addition to the 60% PM wintry mix for Monday, there’s a 30% PM chance for rain, and with a possible low of 9 degrees on Tuesday? Brrr!

Here’s one more look at the beautiful sunset on my weather camera in Hot Springs, Arkansas, this evening.

Finally, here’s a look at some of this past week’s weather-related news:

Wintry Addition to Tonight’s Forecast #ARWX

Wintry Addition to Tonight’s Forecast #ARWX

In addition to the rain Arkansas is receiving today that I mentioned in the seven day forecast in my Weekly Wrap Up on Saturday, parts of the state may also receive some wintry precipitation in addition to the rain. Here’s a look at the high-resolution current Arkansas Radar, where Northwest Arkansas can already possibly be seeing a wintry mix picked up on Snow Machine (most maps courtesy of Baron Threat Net).

Some parts of the state are under a Winter Weather Advisory, with some under a Lake Wind Advisory and Northeast Arkansas under a Winter Storm Warning.

Here is also a look at the Baron forecast model and WSI RPM model for 11PM when Garland County has the best chance of possibly receiving wintry precipitation tonight.

I’ll be tweeting out updates on my Twitter @theparkernathan in the event of any winter-weather updates this evening.

Weekly Wrap Up: January 6, 2018 #ARWX

Weekly Wrap Up: January 6, 2018 #ARWX

Welcome to my first edition of Weekly Wrap Up, a new weekly blog post series I’ll be posting on Saturdays with a look back at the past week’s weather in Arkansas, as well as a look ahead of the weather to come. I’ll conclude each post with a series of links to weather news I’ve encountered in the past week. I look forward to hearing your feedback on my series, and I hope you enjoy it. If it’s been a bit since you’ve clicked around on my blog, I also recommend checking it out, as I’ve recently added some additional links to it to build it out more into a full-featured mini weather site versus just showcasing my blog entries.

This past week brought in the new year for 2018, as well as a freezing in the new year with temperatures bitterly cold across the state. In fact, we were actually colder than Alaska a few of the days! Most of the nation also experienced bitterly cold temperatures, and people bringing in 2018 are likely going to be saying “Make America Warm Again”. There was no rain and no severe weather events this past week in Arkansas. Here’s a look at the past week’s high and low temperatures from my Earth Networks personal weather station.

Here’s a look at the current conditions from my weather station this evening, as well as current temperatures across the state (maps courtesy of Baron Threat Net and Earth Networks Sferic Maps).

Tomorrow will likely see the first rain in Arkansas for 2018. For those in Hot Springs and central Arkansas, the most intense of the rain will likely hit around 10PM. Here’s a look at FutureCast for tomorrow at 10PM from the Baron forecast model for Arkansas and for the region.

By Monday at 5AM when the bulk of the rain event has moved out of the state, here are the rainfall total potentials across Arkansas from the Baron forecast model.

One question residents of Arkansas are wondering if there is a chance of any wintry precipitation tomorrow for Arkansas. There is a slight chance of wintry precipitation tomorrow for North Arkansas around Harrison, Mountain Home, and Eureka Springs, but it’s likely not to be a major event or cause any major travel issues except for a couple potential ice patches. Here’s Tweet from the NWS in Little Rock concerning the chance of wintry preciptiation in Arkansas.

Here’s also a look at the 7 day extended forecast for Hot Springs Arkansas. Expect heavy rain chances for Sunday and some rain chances for Monday, as well as a 40% chance or rain on Thursday. Temperatures will be on the increase through Thursday and begin falling off again Friday.

Here’s a picture of the snow event from Chipper McDonald in Purdy, VA from the winter weather event that hit New England this week. Thanks for sharing this Chipper!

Lastly, here’s a look at the weather news over the past week:

Have a Happy New Year!

Have a Happy New Year!

I hope everyone has a blessed and Happy New Year in 2018! 2017 was an exciting year for WeatherTogether with me and my fellow bloggers from WeatherQuack.com joining the WeatherTogether team and merging under them. I look forward to what’s in store for 2018 and excited to see where 2018 takes WeatherTogether. Thanks for continuing to read all our blog reports and for being a part of WeatherTogether.

It’s freeze in the New Year across much of the nation, including Arkansas. Here’s a look at our current temperatures, plus we’re under a Wind Chill Advisory across the entire state and Fayetteville and Fort Smith experienced a little wintry precipitation earlier today (maps courtesy of Baron Threat Net and Earth Networks Sferic Maps).

Here are the latest conditions from my PWS (image courtesy of WeatherBug). It’s currently 21 outside this evening.

And it’s only going to get worse as the night goes on. Here’s a look at the future temperature map for 5:00 AM from the Baron forecast model and 5:30 AM from the WSI RPM model.

We may all be wanting to say in 2018, “Make America Warm Again”. 🙂

That wraps it up here! Have a great New Year in 2018! Nathan Parker signing off!

Tropical Storm Vinta Impacts The Philippines

Tropical Storm Vinta Impacts The Philippines

Tropical Storm Vinta impacted The Philippines this past week. I managed to get some news updates and pictures of Vinta’s impact on The Philippines courtesy of pastor Welnar Ayag over Facebook (he’s located in The Philippines), and I will include additional updates in upcoming blog entries if I manage to get any additional information to relay.

Here are a few Facebook posts of the tropical storm news pastor Welnar managed to send me:

Here are also a couple of news articles covering the tropical storm available here and available here (both are in a foreign language and will need to be translated into English in order to read them).

Lastly, here are some pictures taken by pastor Welnar of the flooding and impact of Tropical Storm Vinta as it impacted his area.

Our prayers go out to the people of The Philippines impacted by Tropical Storm Vinta, as it seems to be a horrible storm. I will find out if a text-to-donate option is going to be available in which to contribute to the victims of this severe weather event.

That wraps it up here! Nathan Parker signing off.

Have a Blessed and Merry Christmas! #ARWX

Have a Blessed and Merry Christmas! #ARWX

On behalf of the WeatherTogether admin team, I want to wish all my fellow contributors and readers of WeatherTogether a blessed and Merry Christmas! It has been an exciting year for WeatherTogether, as well as the integration of WeatherQuack.com’s content under WeatherTogether to expand WeatherTogether’s contributor footprint both nationwide and globally, as well as giving readers a balance between weather reports served up fresh daily in addition to the expanded coverage of major weather events. Our team of contributors has dramatically increased over the year, as well as we’ve been making some great progress on webcams and models additions to the site as well. I look forward to seeing what’s in store for 2018!

Here in Arkansas I personally didn’t get a White Christmas yet, but it seems some parts of the state are. Here’s the latest look at Arkansas Radar with Snow Machine showing snow across North Arkansas, and 1 Hr FutureScan showing it’s going to linger around for a bit. If anyone in Arkansas is seeing snow or wintry precipitation, let me know and tweet me some pictures at my Twitter @theparkernathan (maps courtesy of Baron Threat Net).

Here’s a look at temperatures across Arkansas, both from NWS stations (map courtesy of Baron Threat Net) and Earth Networks weather stations (map courtesy of Earth Networks Sferic Maps). Here’s also a look at the current conditions on my Earth Networks Personal Weather Station (image courtesy of WeatherBug), as well as a look at my Earth Networks HD Cam outside my home showing a beautiful view of the sky this evening. Remember you can also view my HD Cam at any time right here.

For those traveling across the region this evening, here’s a look at the current satellite/radar across the region (image courtesy of Baron Threat Net).

For a little Christmas fun and enjoyment, here’s a look at the current conditions at the North Pole (well, the North Pole in Alaska since I don’t think Santa owns a weather station yet. To my colleagues at Earth Networks, can we make that happen before next Christmas?). Here’s also a look at the current conditions in Nazareth, the hometown of Jesus, as I also didn’t see a weather station directly in Bethlehem yet (maybe another place we can add a weather station to before next Christmas?). I’m also including a map of the current temperatures across Israel so you can get a glimpse of the weather stations across Israel (current conditions graphics are from WeatherBug, Israel temperature map is from Earth Networks Sferic Maps).

And for a final Christmas enjoyment, here are a couple of images from the Accordance Bible Lands PhotoGuide of the Basilica of the Nativity in Bethlehem. What a beautiful sight and one to enjoy on Christmas!

That wraps it up here! Have a blessed and Merry Christmas! Nathan Parker signing off!

Quite the Downpour Yesterday in Arkansas #ARWX

Quite the Downpour Yesterday in Arkansas #ARWX

Arkansas received quite the downpour yesterday! While there wasn’t a major severe weather event (except for a Flash Flood Watch and some Flood Warnings and Flash Flood Warnings, as well as a Winter Weather Advisory in Northwest Arkansas), Arkansas did receive a major share of much-needed rain, as well as some intense rumbles of thunder during the event.

Here are a couple of flooding pictures from yesterday’s event, courtesy of KATV Todd Yakoubian: @KATVToddYak on Twitter.

According to the NWS Little Rock (@NWSLittleRock) on Twitter, yesterday’s rain event broke a record, as well as ranked the 6th highest calendar day rainfall for December in Little Rock.

Here’s a look at rainfall over the past week according to my CoCoRaHS gauge here in Hot Springs, Arkansas, as well as a look at CoCoRaHS totals across the state from yesterday’s event.

Snow Machine on Baron Threat Net showed some wintry precipitation on radar in Northwest Arkanasas yesterday during the event (as seen in the tweet below from my Twitter @theparkernathan, and according to KATV Todd Yakoubian (@KATVToddYak) on Twitter, some people in Northwest Arkansas woke up to a wintry pre-Christmas present.

All clear here tonight across Arkansas. Here’s a look at temperatures across the state both from NWS stations (map courtesy of Baron Threat Net) and Earth Networks weather stations (map couresty of Earth Networks Sferic Maps).

Quick admin note: WeatherQuack.com’s content officially finished merging under WeatherTogether.net as of today. WeatherQuack.com and WeatherTogether.net are finally completely together at lat. WeatherQuack.com will be shutting down as a separate website next week, with WeatherQuack.com forwarding to WeatherTogether.net until the domain expires. We’re excited that the merge is complete, and we look forward to what is in store for us in 2018!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving today and fills up plenty on delicious turkey with all the trimmings! I am thankful to be blogging on here, and I am thankful to be a member of the WeatherTogether contributor and admin team and am thankful to all my fellow contributors at WeatherTogether. Our weather is absolutely perfect for Thanksgiving today, and I am thankful for this beautiful weather! Here’s a look at current temperatures across Central Arkansas (map courtesy of Baron Threat Net) and a look outside on my HD weather cam (which you can also view on the WeatherTogether website by clicking here).

Coming up as soon as I and the rest of the admin team finish wrapping up a few additional projects with the WeatherQuack merge under WeatherTogether, I’m planning on launching a weekly blog series on here on Saturdays called my “weekly wrap up” with a look back at the last week’s weather, a look forward to the next week’s forecast, and a roundup of the week’s weather news I’ve encountered. It should be a ton of fun, and I look forward to bringing it to you coming up!

Welcome to WeatherTogether

Welcome to WeatherTogether

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).
