I started the day at Lost Valley; with flurries and low 20’s after a night of high North winds. Over at Lost Valley the water was running well in Clark Creek and the Beech Tees offered a nice contrast:

We have accumulated 6.85 inches of rain here in the mountains during the past 2 and 1/2 days. I left at 9 AM and got a photo from AR 327. This is unusual for October, usually our nicest month temperature and precipitation wise. The Buffalo River at Ponca is 6″ over the bridge and rising fast. On the way back from Ponca, I got into some clear skies and took the 2nd photo but more thundershowers are on the way. The trees in the Bostons are still mostly green so a few weeks are needed yet for full color.

The Buffalo River and the Little Buffalo watersheds have received lots of rain this morning. We received 2.25 inches of rain in about 3 hours. Thus WILL bring up all tributaries and river in the Boston Mountains (including the Piney Creek and the Mulberry). We are expecting 2-4 additional inches of rain when the energy and moist air from the TS Simon to arrive Sunday evening. Until then scattered showers and T-storms will drop another 1-2 inches in the Boston Mountains of Arkansas. Below are the River (USGS) reports from Ponca at Noon today and the radar (with storms moving N to S at 9 AM) today 10/10/2014:

We got a solid 5.27 inches of rain in 90 minutes yesterday. I got exactly 0.75 during the first and most severe storm; including 1″ hail. Then a lightening struck took down my DAVIS INSTRUMENTS weather station for about 3 hours at 4:42 PM. I had the restart and reset the day to 0.00 inches of rain at 4:42PM and then re-started and began re-tallying the rain and got an additional 4.52 inches. (4.52 + .76 =5.27).

Needless to say, the creeks and rivers are very high and may still be coming up. In places, the roads are nearly impassable due to large boulders washing across.

Here are a few poor photos of my trip up to Jasper this morning:

We have had rain for 4 straight days; but, it’s been fairly gentle. This morning the Little Buffalo finally became muddy and the Buffalo River at Steel Creek below Bee Bluff  is becoming murky and rising at a moderate speed. If the rain continues, like forecasted, the Buffalo will be floatable at Ponca this coming weekend and beyond. These heaviest storm are just beginning at noon today:
