COMMITTMENT

As part of the Weather-Ready Nation, I’m committed to serving my community by relaying hazardous weather information before, during, and after the storm.


About Me

Originally from San Jose California, I make my home in central Arkansas where my passion is anything weather related, specializing in severe weather events.


LIVE STORM CHASING

During periods of severe weather in Arkansas and other parts of the nation, there’s a good chance I’ll be out chasing storms. You can watch it all here.

Arkansas Weather Information

Arkansas Weather Outlook

Most of my forecast information is centered on the central Arkansas region but I will focus on other regions of the state as well. My approach is simple, no hype weather in an easy to understand format. There are plenty of good sites out there to get a more detailed and higher level of meteorological discussion and occasionally I’ll go there but for the most part, simple is better.  You can hear my weather forecasts Monday – Friday mornings around 6:20 AM on 103.7 FM The Buzz’s “Show With No Name”.

ARKANSAS SEVERE WEATHER OUTLOOK

There is a Marginal Risk for severe weather this afternoon and tonight across the NW 1/3 of the state. The primary threat is damaging wind, but some hail and an isolated tornado may also be possible.

PICTURE OF THE MONTH

This is where I'll display some of my favorite photographs. Each month will feature a new picture.
