Bring On The Rain!

By | July 22nd, 2017|Categories: Arkansas Weather|0 Comments

After a very warm or should I say "hot" week in the Natural State, many are needing some rainfall. Although we are running a surplus in most of central Arkansas, these hot temperatures can quickly dry out the vegetation. Only isolated afternoon showers and thunderstorms have been seen this week [...]

Weather In Pixels

If I’m not storm chasing you may catch me around Arkansas with my camera in tow. I’ll post some of my favorite pictures here. Here is a developing tornado near Chester Oklahoma on May 18, 2017. The supercell thunderstorm that produced this tornado also produced 4 additional funnel clouds or tornadoes.

About Me

Michael Hook

Thank you for visiting my website! I am originally from San Jose California where the weather is rather quiet for most of the year. My interest in severe weather was sparked in April of 1974. I was watching the nightly news with my parents and saw images of tornadoes just after the “Super Outbreak” of severe weather that struck the south and mid-west. I became fascinated with weather and I’ve been “hooked” ever since! I’ve been storm chasing for more than 25 years and have seen numerous tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, floods, snowstorms and I’ve even ventured down to the Gulf Coast for a couple of hurricane landfalls. I’ve been a part of featured stories about storm chasing in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette newspaper, and Arkansas Life magazine. I was humbled to be recognized in Sync magazine as a reliable source for Arkansas weather information on the #arwx Twitter feed. My passion has always been weather and I try to present it in a simple way that is easy to understand. I am currently working on sharpening my photography and video skills and hope to have some really great pictures and video to share soon. You can listen to me each morning in on KABZ 103.7 The BUZZ out of Little Rock between 6:25am and 6:35am as I discuss the days weather picture across central Arkansas

 

The Pod

The Pod is my storm chasing vehicle. It’s a 2010 Honda Fit and although it’s small, it’s a tough little car. It has plenty of room for all my storm chasing gear. When I’m not chasing solo, my storm chasing partner, Erich Hopkins drives,so add in an extra person and their gear, and there is still quite a bit of room. The Pod is tough. It’s been blasted by large hail several times and escaped a close encounter with a tornado and its 100+ mph winds. If you look close at the car, you’ll see the battle scars. It might not be able to get down some of those dirt roads in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Kansas, but it gets close to 40 miles per gallon which is a big plus.
