Week in review (Feb. 7-13)

What a strange week it was here in Arkansas. Some parts of the state got over two feet of snow on Wednesday and Thursday and the temperatures here in central Arkansas on Sunday were in the 60-degree range.
Ah, but that’s the thing about the Natural State, isn’t it? If you don’t like the weather, give it a few minutes and it will change.
At any rate, we did manage to get some articles written here at First Arkansas News in spite of all the oddness going on with the weather, businesses …

Worse than we thought

The National Weather Service and just about every media outlet in Arkansas warned us snow was on the way Wednesday.
They were all right, but it appears the initial precipitation projections were a bit low. The National Weather Service predicted we’d see up to 6 inches of snow in some areas and a bit more than that in others. According to one First Arkansas News reader — Barbara Cecil of Springdale — 27 inches of snow had fallen in her town before 10 a.m. this morning and the storm is still …

Winter weather paralyzes central Arkansas

According to the National Weather Service office in Little Rock, between 2 and 6 inches of snow fell on central and southern Arkansas between Sunday afternoon and early Monday morning.
Some areas of the state received 10 inches of snow during the storm, as detailed quite well on a map in a weather report issued by the Weather Service.
Naturally, that much snow dumped on an area that typically receives very little caused a number of problems.
In central Arkansas, the National Guard was called out shortly after midnight on Monday to check …

Just yesterday, the National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for Arkansas.
As anyone who has lived in this state might tell you, if you don’t like the weather in Arkansas just wait five minutes and it will change. Apparently, the same is true for weather forecasts.
Yes, we still have a winter weather forecast in effect, but it seems the storm to the southwest isn’t moving through the state as quickly as expected. The National Weather Service says we still have snow on the way, but it will arrive later …
