Today Joan Early told me she's "addicted" to the Arkansas Weather Blog. I went 3 or 4 days without updating and I got the feeling that was not acceptable. LOL. I was at a grocery store Wednesday and I had a couple people come up to me and say they love reading the blog. It gave me an idea. If you ever see me out and about, don't hesitate to say "Hey Weather Geek"!!! Remember, the 2nd winter contest continues until the end of the month. After that, get ready to send in your entries for the summer weather contest. This year I will add an interesting twist to it.
Despite recent storms, March has not been active compared to other years... so far. I know this will change and severe weather season will kick into high gear. But I don't see that happening for at least the next 7 days.
We do have a storm system which will bring rain and a few rumbles of thunder Sunday into Monday. This has the potential to be a cool and miserable rain.
By the end of next week, I think we could see much, much warmer weather invading the central and eastern United States. It may only last two or three days, but I think we'll have the POSSIBILITY to go well into the 70s to near 80 degrees by next Thursday and Friday.
