By Justin Logan - bio | email feedback

Hardy, AR (KAIT) - A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Friday afternoon in downtown Hardy for a new weather station and camera. 

Until now the closest weather observations were from Mountain Home. The new weather station will provide residents in hardy with current temperature, wind speed and direction, how much rain has fallen and much more.

Mayor Nina Thornton hopes that this new weather station will bring more people to their town.

Thornton said, "I think that this will bring tourism, more tourists people to come to our city. I think that people don't really know exactly what we have to offer and they're going to be able to see it live 24/7 now.

The weather station is sponsored by the Advertising and Promotions Committee of Hardy.

The new station will allow the Region 8 StormTEAM to see what's happening across the area and keep you informed.
