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

DATE......HIGH........LOW.........RAIN
Dec..2..54F/12.2C..38F/3.3C...---
.......3..44F/6.6C...27F/-2.7C..---
.......4..42F/5.5C...20F/-6.6C..---
.......5..49F/9.4C...23F/-5.0C..---
.......6..41F/5.0C...36F/2.2C...0.20"/5.0mm
.......7..40F/4.4C...38F/3.3C...0.25"/6.3mm
.......8..39F/3.8C...33F/0.5C...1.00"/25.4mm

For the week of Dec. 2-8: Mena's Avg. Max.: 53.4F/11.8C; Avg. Min.: 32.1F/0.0C

This past week featured seasonably chilly temperatures with a prolonged rain event at weeks' end. A Pacific cold front came through on the 6th, and upper-level impulses passed along the frontal boundary--to the south of my area, in the N Gulf of Mexico--bringing cool, foggy, cloudy, drizzly/light rain conditions (with little temperature movement) for the 6th-8th. Such prolonged cold, damp & rainy conditions aren't good for my joints and not seeing the sun for a while tends to be a bit depressing after these prolonged times (Very Thankfully seeing sunshine today--Sunday).
Overall Low-abt. 11:15PM-listed for the 27th; Overall High--12:01AM & Overall Low--abt. 11:15PM--listed for the 8th (as the Morning Low was 35F/1.6C & Daytime High was only 37F/2.7C--abt. 10AM).
Forecast for upcoming week calls for a bit of a warm-up with the best rainchances to be for Thursday.

This last full week of Autumn/Fall featured somewhat variable temperatures--esp. minimums--and more nice rainfall. Rain early week was left-overs from the previous days' Pacific cold front; another Pacific cold front--passage on the 14th--brought the rainshowers (a few thunder rumbles) late week. Fairly foggy with the light rain on the 13th.
Overall Low-abt. 11:15PM-listed for the 9th; Overall High-12:01AM & Overall Low-abt. 11:20PM-listed for the 14th (as the Daytime High was a chilly & damp 51F/10.5C at the 7:15AM sunrise).
Forecast for upcoming week calls for a mild warm up with the next shower chances & cool down for midweek. The weather--temperatures & conditions--is still not bad for this late in the year/season.

This past week featured a very chilly, damp & rainy start with a much warmer finish with plenty of sunshine. A Pacific cold front passed by on the 31st; A cold front boundary to our South with Upper-Level Lows conspired to give my area very cloudy, chilly & rainy conditions from the 2nd-4th (if it was a bit colder, my area would have received good amounts of Wintry precipitation).
Overall Low-abt. 11:40PM-listed for the 31st.
Forecast for upcoming week calls for warmer temperatures and then another cool-down, with showers (possibly with snow) later in the week.

For the week of Jan. 6-12: Mena's Avg. Max.: 48.0F/8.8C; Avg. Min.: 27.0F/-2.7C

This first full week of 2019 featured (again) early-week warmth, followed by a much cooler finish. The passage of a couple Pacific cold fronts (Southerly-tracking Low-pressure)--on the 7th & 12th-- brought the shower activity. The 11th & 12th were especially showery, damp, chilly & murky with a cold East wind & little temperature movement.
Overall Low--abt. 11:30PM--listed for the 7th (as the Morning Low was a balmy 55F/12.7C); The Maximum on the 11th was at 12:01AM & abt. 11AM.
Any Wintry precipitation (sleet, freezing rain, snow) was somewhat N & NW of my area. Still holding out hope for a good snowdump in my area before Winter comes to an end.
Forecast for upcoming week calls once again for recovering temperatures with good shower chances & another fair cool-down by later in the week.
(I'll be soon enjoying ESPN's coverage of the Australian Open Tennis tournament. Wish I was in Aus-land and enjoying warmer conditions & longer daylight times).

*=Rain equivalent of .25"/0.6CM of snow

After a chilly start to the week, my area finally had a good taste of Winter on the 19th. A Warm front came through on the 18th, followed by a fairly strong Pacific cold front early AM on the 19th. The 19th was a day of falling temperatures, light sleet & snow, and very gusty & cold NW winds.
At 1:35PM on the 19th, Mena's Intermountain Municipal Airport reported a temperature of 30F/-1.1C (cloudy) with NW winds at 24MPH/38.6KPH (Gusts of 35MPH/56.3KPH), giving a frigid Wind Chill value of 16F/-8.8C--DEF a great day to stay indoors. After a brief amount of sleet, light snow fell; I recorded .25"/0.6CM snow at my house (areas not far to my NW/W/N recorded higher snowfall amounts; 3-4"/7.6-10.1CM were common amounts in N/NW Arkansas). Although the snowfall was scant, I'm Happy & Thankful for any amount; this was the first measurable snow I've recorded here since I copped 1.5"/3.8CM of snow on March 5, 2015.

Hello Morham & All:
Here's previous weeks' weather in Mena, Arkansas:

DATE.......HIGH........LOW........RAIN
Jan..20..42F/5.5C...16F/-8.8C..---
.......21..47F/8.3C...27F/-2.7C..---
.......22..55F/12.7C..34F/1.1C...0.70"/17.7C
.......23..34F/1.1C...25F/-3.8C..0.10"/2.5mm
.......24..51F/10.5C..19F/-7.2C..---
.......25..44F/6.6C...18F/-7.7C..---
.......26..50F/10C....27F/-2.7C..---

This past week was fairly typical of Winter--somewhat variable maximums with chilly mornings. Raintotal was from a Warm Front (early AM) followed by the trailing Pacific Cold Front (late PM) passing on the 22nd; a dry Canadian Cold Front passed through on the 24th. Most days in the week had fairly abundant sunshine.
Overall Low-abt. 11:50PM-listed for the 22nd (the Morning Low was a fairly warm 45F/7.2C); Overall High-12:01AM-listed for the 23rd (the Daytime High was a cool 31F/-0.5C around 12:10PM).
Forecast for upcoming week calls for a chilly start, with rising temperatures and better rainchances near the weekend.

Hello Morham: Thanks, and my area can have fairly interesting weather at times throughout the year. As I've said before, I wouldn't mind being in Australia at this time of the year (esp. on our cold & damp days), as your area of the world is experiencing warmer/hotter temperatures & longer daylight times. Our daylight times here are stretching out, but not that much each day; for today--Monday, January 28th--Mena's Sunrise was at 7:18AM, with a 5:41PM Sunset).

Kind Wishes--Take Care & GOD Bless~~~Wet Snow

Hi Wet Snow, did the polar vortex have much effect on your weather in the past week?

Hello LonnyDave & All:

The recent deep & strong Polar Vortex which is still impacting parts of the US, really had little impact on my area of the US; as the much colder air (Chicago, Illinois had a record low maximum of -14F/-25.5C [with Wind Chill values near -50F/-45.5C] the other day & Peoria, Illinois broke their all-time minimum temperature with -33F/-36.1C the following morning), was to the N & NE & SE of my area.
Aside from our very light snow amount, the recent temperatures here (maximums & minimums) were within normal/typical Wintertime temperatures (but the conditions did feel cooler compared to the above-normal readings of the previous days). No Daily Record Low Minimum/Low Maximum temperatures were broken/tied in Arkansas, that I know of. Currently, my area is forecasted for a nice warm-up.


Enjoy your warmer temperatures & fairly long daylight times & Many Thanks For Your Question & Interest! I Hope & Pray Your Area Stays Bushfire-free in your Summer.

Kind Wishes & Take Care~~~Wet Snow

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

DATE.......HIGH........LOW........RAIN
Jan..27..56F/13.3C..25F/-3.8C..---
.......28..51F/10.5C..28F/-2.2C..---
.......29..41F/5.0C...22F/-5.5C..---
.......30..46F/7.7C...20F/-6.6C..---
.......31..45F/7.2C...24F/-4.4C..---
Feb....1..54F/12.2C..43F/6.1C...0.10"/2.5mm
.........2..55F/12.7C..50F/10.0C..---

This past week featured a typical Wintertime roller-coaster temperature profile. A dry Pacific cold front passed through on the 28th; another dry Pacific cold front passed through on the 30th, this cold front became Stationary near the Arkansas/Louisiana border & retreated back Northward as a Warm Front on the 31st.
Although the temperatures were cooler, the skies were mostly sunny for much of the week. Actually felt a bit humid (warm SW winds) on the 1st & 2nd.
Overall Low-around 11:40PM-listed for the 28th.
Forecast for the upcoming week calls for much-above maximums (& minimums) early-week, followed by thunderstorm chances & a good temperature-drop just past mid-week.

This past week--again--featured Springlike warmth to start, followed by a very chilly finish.
Was so warm on the 4th, that I actually turned the a/c on in my house! I also heard those "Spring Peeper" frogs croaking & I have daffodil/jonquil shoots poking up in my front yard.
A fairly strong Canadian cold front passed through (around 5:30AM) on the 7th & an Upper-Level Disturbance caused the precipitation on the 9th. Was great to hear the thunder rumbles as the cold front/thundershower line passed through on the 7th. Light Freezing Rain fell overnight 9th/10th.
The Maximum on the 3rd was at 3:40PM and the temperature--aided by gusty & warm SW winds--stayed steady for the remainder of the night; Overall High-12:01AM-and Overall Low-abt. 11:50PM-listed for the 7th (the Daytime High was a chilly 43F/6.1C at the 7:11AM sunrise, with steadily falling temperatures).
Forecast for upcoming week calls for rebounding (near normal) temperatures with showers expected early-week and cooler weather by the weekend (poss. wintry precipitation on Saturday morning).
