3:30 PM Thursday Update... I have located the hourly observations from the official site in Little Rock. You will have to click on it to enlarge.
We all know Chris Kane is a fun, charismatic, and somewhat knowledgeable guy (LOL) but he's now harassing me about a forecast from early October. That week I was filling in for Melinda and promised him that Saturday, October 6th would NOT be a "wash-out", but there would be some rain.
Once Saturday rolled around, he lit up twitter proclaiming my forecast went south just like many of his jokes. Fast forward to today (Thursday November 8th), he brought it up on the set of Good Morning Arkansas. He claimed it rained all day long and it was a wash out and I insisted nothing like that happened.
I first went back and looked at the official records from the National Weather Service and found only .31'' of rain fell at the Little Rock airport. That's the first clue that an all day rain did not occur, unless it was light. So I decided to go back and retrieve the actual radar data from 7 AM until 7 PM that day. Watch it and tell me what you think? Was it a "wash out"? My definition of that means it rains the entire day or at least all the daylight hours. You can participate in the poll to the right and make your choice.
All in good fun, but let's settle this once and for all. If I win, Chris has promised me a steak dinner. By the way Chris, I like my steak medium to medium rare.
As I always tell you, "never say never to Arkansas weather". We have the risk for some strong to severe thunderstorms late today...
Active may be an understatement when it comes to the weather over the next 5 days. The first round of rough weather arrives Wednesday after...
Last Saturday we started to see the possibility for a tropical system to affect Arkansas. It's looking more and more likely at least so...
