...A PRELIMINARY REVIEW OF 2013 WEATHER AND CLIMATE FOR THE STATE OF
ARKANSAS...

SUMMARY
===========================================================================
IN MANY WAYS...2013 IN ARKANSAS WAS MARKEDLY DIFFERENT THAN 2012. BY
AVERAGE TEMPERATURE IT WAS THE COOLEST YEAR IN NEARLY TWO DECADES...
COMPARED TO THE 2ND WARMEST YEAR LAST YEAR. THOUGH DROUGHT CONTINUED
INTO 2013...ABUNDANT RAINFALL AT VARIOUS TIMES AND LOCALES
THROUGHOUT THE YEAR EASED THINGS...AND AT THE END OF THE YEAR...NO
PART OF THE STATE WAS CONSIDERED UNDER DROUGHT CONDITIONS.

SNOWFALL WAS SEEN IN ALL PARTS OF THE STATE THIS YEAR...AND
MEASURABLE SNOWFALL IN MOST OF IT. THE SNOW STORMS WHICH HAD THE
MOST IMPACT ON THE STATE WERE IN MARCH AND DECEMBER. PERHAPS THE
MOST NOTABLE SNOWSTORM...ASIDE FROM THE ONE ON DECEMBER 5TH-6TH WAS
THE ONE IN EARLY MAY...WHICH SET RECORDS FOR NOT ONLY THE LATEST
SNOWFALL EVER IN STATE HISTORY...BUT THE LATEST MEASURABLE SNOWFALL.

TEMPERATURES IN MOST MONTHS WERE THE COOLEST IN SEVERAL YEARS.
ANOMALOUSLY COLD HIGH TEMPERATURES WERE SEEN DURING THE EARLY PART
OF APRIL...IN EARLY MAY...AND IN MID TO LATE NOVEMBER. COLD LOW
TEMPERATURES WERE NOTED DURING THE FIRST WEEK OF MAY...THE LAST DAY
OR SO OF JUNE AND THE FIRST WEEK OF JULY. ARCTIC AIR DURING THE
EARLY PART OF DECEMBER PLUNGED TEMPERATURES DOWN INTO THE SINGLE
DIGITS TO NEAR ZERO IN THE NORTH...WITH GILBERT FALLING TO
ZERO...GIVING THE STATE ITS COLDEST DECEMBER TEMPERATURE IN TWO
YEARS.

ICE STORMS WERE SEEN ON JANUARY 14TH-15TH...FEBRUARY 20TH-21ST...
AND DECEMBER 5TH AND 6TH. THE ONE WITH THE MOST SIGNIFICANT IMPACT WAS
IN DECEMBER...WITH PARTS OF WESTERN ARKANSAS HARDEST HIT. THERE WERE AS
MANY AS 60000 POWER OUTAGES IN THE STATE...AND THE WEIGHT OF SNOW AND
SLEET CAUSED A FEW STRUCTURES IN NORTHERN ARKANSAS TO COLLAPSE.

DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS...THERE WERE SEVERAL DAYS WITH TRIPLE-DIGIT
HEAT...BUT NOT NEARLY THE AMOUNT OF THE LAST FEW YEARS. THE HOTTEST
TEMPERATURE DURING THE YEAR WAS 104...WHICH WAS THE LOWEST SUCH
READING SINCE 2002.

RAINFALL WAS FAIRLY EVENLY DISTRIBUTED THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. THE
DRIEST MONTH WAS IN JUNE...AND THE WETTEST WAS IN MAY. THIS WAS THE
FIRST YEAR SINCE 2011 WITH RAINFALL ABOVE NORMAL.

BELOW ARE STATEWIDE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES AND RAINFALL FOR EACH MONTH
OF THE YEAR. REMEMBER MOST OF THE DATA BELOW IS PRELIMINARY UNTIL
CERTIFIED CORRECT BY THE NATIONAL CLIMATIC DATA CENTER IN ASHEVILLE
NORTH CAROLINA. DATA FROM JANUARY THROUGH SEPTEMBER HAVE ALREADY
UNDERGONE FINAL QUALITY CONTROL AND HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED.
