For YEARS I have wanted weather information from Paragould, but there has not been an ASOS (Automated Surface Observation System) at the airport. Well, we have partnered with Arkansas Methodist Medical Center to put weather instruments on their building AND a SkyCAM!!!!
At some point in the next few weeks, we will have a live camera with current conditions in Paragould! I have been on the roof of the hospital and the view is awesome. If you can't tell, I'm pretty excited about it. Look for more cameras to pop up across Region 8 in the future. I'm hoping some other businesses will partner with us, too.
PS- My father-in-law works at the hospital and has volunteered to dance for the camera during the newscasts!
