Hello Folks:
Here's previous weeks' weather in Mena, Arkansas:

DATE.......HIGH........LOW.........RAIN
Apr..15..52F/11.1C..34F/1.1C...---
.......16..72F/22.2C..35F/1.6C...---
.......17..81F/27.2C..52F/11.1C..---
.......18..75F/23.8C..52F/11.1C..---
.......19..63F/17.2C..44F/6.6C...---
.......20..68F/20.0C..41F/5.0C...---
.......21..67F/19.4C..45F/7.2C...0.50"/12.7mm

For the week of Apr. 15-21: Mena's Avg. Max.: 71.4F/21.8C; Avg. Min.: 46.7F/8.1C

This past week--again--featured a coolish start and end with a warm mid-week. A dry Pacific cold front passed through on the 18th. Rain on the 21st was from passage (on the 22nd) of another Pacific cold front.
My area was in a Freeze Watch on the morning of the 15th & 16th--due to the near-freezing minimums on those days. This Spring seems to be cooler than usual & the coolness is lasting longer. Oh well, I guess we'll be wanting some of this cooler weather come the high heat of Summer.
Overall Low-around 11:15PM-listed for the 18th (as the morning minimum was a warm & pre-frontal 61F/16.1C).
Forecast for upcoming week calls for somewhat of a repeat in the pattern--a few days of warmth with otherwise cooler conditions and good shower chances by midweek.

Hello Folks:
Here's previous weeks' weather in Mena, Arkansas:

DATE......HIGH........LOW........RAIN
Apr..22..53F/11.6C..50F/10C...0.10"/2.5mm
.......23..69F/20.5C..50F/10C...---

.......27..75F/23.8C..44F/6.6C..---
.......28..82F/27.7C..42F/5.5C..---

For the week of Apr. 22-28: Mena's Avg. Max.: 73.0F/22.7C; Avg. Min.: 49.2F/9.5C

This past week featured another up-and-down temperature profile for maximums with somewhat chilly mornings. Light rain amount on the 22nd was from passage of a Pacific cold front on the previous day. Another Pacific cold front gave the nice rainamount on the 25th; a dry Pacific cold front went through on the 27th & a dry Canadian cold front passed through on the 28th--about all these latter 2 coldfronts did was give chillier mornings, wider daily temperature spreads and lower humidity levels.
The Maximum on the 22nd was at 12:01AM & around 4PM, as the temperatures held steady throughout the day.
I think that "Old Man Winter" has finally decided to retreat back northward as the temperatures for the upcoming week are consistently Springlike with no real shots of colder air. There are very good rainchances late-week. It's hard to beat these warm Spring days.

Hello Folks:
Here's previous weeks' weather in Mena, Arkansas:

DATE.......HIGH........LOW........RAIN
Apr..29..79F/26.1C..55F/12.7C..---
.......30..80F/26.6C..54F/12.2C..---
May...1..77F/25C....60F/15.5C..---
........2..79F/26.1C..68F/20C....---
........3..73F/22.7C..64F/17.7C..1.05"/26.6mm
........4..69F/20.5C..60F/15.5C..0.10"/2.5mm
........5..79F/26.1C..53F/11.6C..---

For the week of Apr. 29-May 5: Mena's Avg. Max.: 74.2F/23.4C; Avg. Min.: 51.2F/10.6C

This past week featured warmer maximums with some lower temperatures thrown in for good measure. The nice thundershowers were courtesy of a Pacific cold front, which passed through on the 4th (the main thundershower line--somewhat gusty winds & fairly heavy rainfall--passed through just after 1PM on the 3rd). Otherwise, the days were excellent for any outdoor activity.
Overall High-12:01AM-listed for the 3rd & the minimum was around 1:55PM (during heavy thundershower activity); the maximum on the 4th was at 12:01AM & around 7:45AM & the Overall Low was around 9:30PM.
Well, this looks like the last of the overall really cool weather for a while: the forecast for the upcoming week calls for fairly warmer maximums (near 85F/~29C) and minimums (near 65F/~18C); with poor rainchances (0-20%).

Hello Fowell: Thanks Much for your Very Kind Words & Interest. Glad you enjoy the weekly/monthly reports; as I enjoy compiling the numbers. Have A Great One, Good Buddy.

Hello Folks:
Here's previous weeks' weather in Mena, Arkansas:

DATE.......HIGH........LOW........RAIN
May...6..86F/30.0C..51F/10.5C..---

......11..84F/28.8C..62F/16.6C..---
......12..84F/28.8C..68F/20.0C..---

For the week of May 6-12: Mena's Avg. Max.: 75.5F/24.1C; Avg. Min.: 53.7F/12.0C

*=This tied the Rec. High Max. for the Date (set in 1941)

Well, it seems we went right into early-Summer with the above-normal warmth this past week (compared to the normal). Totally dry conditions, also--with not that much in terms of cloudcover; aside from morning cloudiness at the start of a couple of the days. Warm & humid-feeling on the afternoons. We could use some rainfall as the ground is looking fairly dry at present.
It appears that the "Bermuda High" (and "Ring of Fire"--thundershower areas around the periphery of the High) is already in place over my area of the US.
A dry & week Canadian cold front passed through on the 7th.
Forecast for upcoming week calls for better shower chances from Tuesday evening into Wednesday with continued above-normal & warm temperatures. If it's this hot halfway into Spring, I wonder what Summer will hold for my area?

For the week of May 13-19: Mena's Avg. Max.: 77.2F/25.1C; Avg. Min.: 56.0F/13.3C

*=This Tied the Rec. High Max. for Date (set in 1941)

This week featured a continuance of the above-average warmth; with a fair bit of humidity as well. Small raintotal was courtesy of a Pacific cold front that managed to push through our area on the 16th.
I was outside--on the 15th--doing yardwork & noticed that the mosquitos are already around. YUCK!
Forecast for upcoming week calls for more warm & muggy days with fair chances for heating/instability showers throughout the week--as we're getting to that time of year when we have an almost daily 20% chance of having such showers.
