Fluctuating Arkansas Weather Linked to Local Meteorologists’ Mental Breakdowns

Wildly unpredictable winter weather has forced five Little Rock forecasters to seek clinical treatment for symptoms including mental instability, compulsive thermometer reading and early stages of multiple on-air personality disorder.

The UAMS Psychiatric Institute admitted the weathermen on Tuesday, Jan. 21, when temperatures in Little Rock plummeted to a bitter 35 degrees–a drastic change from the previous day’s balmy 70-degree weather.

In the forecasters’ absence, Arkansas residents are being forced to turn to the Internet for timely weather updates. Christopher Walliss, a 54-year-old Conway resident, said his iPhone is no replacement for KARK’s Keith Monahan.

“With Keith in a straitjacket somewhere, I am really at the mercy of the elements,” Walliss said. “Siri just can’t explain the high- and low-pressure fronts.”

Little Rock newsrooms have reportedly received an overwhelming amount of support from devoted viewers who have sent get-well cards, hair care products, mascara and fashionable ties.
