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

DATE.......HIGH........LOW.........RAIN
Feb..10..44F/6.6C...32F/0C.....1.10"/27.9mm
.......11..52F/11.1C..44F/6.6C...1.70"/43.1mm
.......12..50F/10C....34F/1.1C...0.10"/2.5mm
.......13..60F/15.5C..27F/-2.7C..---
.......14..64F/17.7C..45F/7.2C...---
.......15..53F/11.6C..38F/3.3C...0.10"/2.5mm
.......16..42F/5.5C...34F/1.1C...---

This past week featured healthy raintotals, variable temperatures and some early signs of Spring: Had brief and light freezing rain overnight Feb. 9/10; good raindump was courtesy of passage of a Warm Front to our south (on the 10th); this front also caused a nighttime temperature rise overnight 10th/11th. A weaker Pacific cold front passed through on the 12th & a mostly dry Canadian cold front came through on the 15th.
On the 15th, I noticed some tiny buds on a few area trees; I saw a (dead) wasp on a nearby sidewalk & there are a few jonquils/daffodils now blooming in my front yard; also have noticed wild onions, henbit weeds & small patches of green grass popping up in area lawns. Hard to believe that there's over a month (officially) of Winter left here in the NH. Still holding out hope of a good snowdump before Winters' end.
The Maximum on the 10th was around 1:30PM & the temperature stayed steady for the remainder of the night; Overall Low-abt. 10:30PM-listed for the 12th. The 15th was a chilly & damp day with steadily falling temperatures--Overall High-12:01AM--and Overall Low-around 11:45PM-listed. A good amount of cloudcover for the week, as--often--the cloudcover likes to linger in my area.
Forecast for the upcoming week calls for a coolish start with moderating temperatures, with early-week & late-week good shower chances--as our weather-pattern becomes more active.

A dry Pacific cold front passed by on the 17th; nice raindump was from a Warm front to the South on the 19th and another dry Pacific cold front passed through on the 23rd; quite a bit of gusty West winds--during the nighttime hours--after this cold front passed (areas of E Arkansas had very heavy rain and some severe weather upon passage of this front). Interestingly, we had thundershowers on the 19th (quite a number of close lightning strikes) with the temperature near 35F/1-2C!
Quite cold & damp on the 19th & I noticed that the rain was freezing on the trees on nearby higher elevations (the ground/streets were still too warm for any ice accumulation here in town).

Hello Folks:

Well, very chilly in Arkansas as "Old Man Winter" came for another visit:
On Sunday, the cold front caused a cloudy, murky & drizzly day with falling temperatures; our Daytime Maximum being 36F/2.2C at the 6:44AM sunrise. Quite cold in Arkansas on Monday morning, under mostly sunny skies: Mena bottomed out at 13F/-10.5C, sometimes a cold Easterly wind blew and our top was only near 30F/-1.1C.

Other Monday morning minimums in Arkansas included:
4F/-15.5C at Winslow (Washington County)
6F/-14.4C at Lead Hill (Boone County)
11F/-11.6C at Gilbert (Newton County)
12F/-11.1C at Calico Rock (Izard County)

Hard to believe that we will have tops above 60F/15C+ and good thundershower/thunderstorm chances near weeks' end.

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

DATE......HIGH........LOW..........RAIN
Mar..3..39F/3.8C...24F/-4.4C...0.25"/6.3mm
.......4..29F/-1.6C..13F/-10.5C..---
.......5..39F/3.8C...16F/-8.8C...---

.......8..69F/20.5C..49F/9.4C....---
.......9..74F/23.3C..48F/8.8C....0.35"/8.8mm

This past week ran the gamut of temperatures in this very late week of Winter season. Raintotal (very early AM) on the 3rd was from Low-Pressure to South (vortex of Pacific cold front) on the 2nd. This front also allowed some colder air from Canada to filter down. The 4th was very cold with Wind Chill values not far above 0F/-17.7C (DEF a good day to stay inside). The passage of another Pacific cold front cause the brief thundershower early day AM on the 9th, several hours of very gusty W/NW winds followed after. Any severe weather--Very Thankfully--was well to my SE. The thundershower hit just before 7:30AM & skies had virtually all cleared by 11AM. Was neat to hear thunder again.
Overall High-12:01AM-listed for the 3rd (the Daytime Maximum being 36F/2.2C at the 6:44AM sunrise) & Overall Low-abt. 11:30AM; Overall Low-around 11:45AM-listed for the 9th (Morning Minimum was a balmy 57F/13.8C). Warm S winds, cloudcover & nighttime fog caused the warmer temperatures late on the 7th through early morning on the 9th.
Forecast for upcoming week--last full week of Winter--calls for rain/showers/thundershowers through mid-week with somewhat cooler temperatures to follow.

This last full week of Winter featured Springlike temperatures with the weather-pattern continuing to be fairly active.
Early week rain was due to passage--on the 13th--of a Pacific cold front (shower activity the earlier days was due to a moist Southerly airflow). Quite a few hours of gusty WNW/NW winds after passage of the cold front on the 14th--sometimes the stronger winds lag behind the fronts.
The SW pre-frontal winds caused a nighttime temperature rise as the Maximum on the 12th was around 10:45PM; Overall High-12:01AM-listed for the 13th; Overall Low-around 11:30PM-listed for the 14th; Overall Low-about 11:40PM-listed for the 15th.
The first 100F+/37.7C+ temperature reading for 2019 in the US was (48 US State High Max.) 102F/38.8C at Falcon Lake, Texas on the 14th (Day 73).
Most of the US went on Daylight Saving Time at 2AM (local time) on the 10th (on that day, Mena's Sunrise was at 7:35PM, with a Sunset at 7:20PM).
Forecast for upcoming week calls for overall warm maximums with the best shower chances for the weekend.
Spring officially begins here in the NH on the 20th.

Spring officially arrived here in the NH/US on the 20th & this past week featured (except the 20th) Springlike maximums & coolish mornings. An almost dry Pacific cold frontal passage caused the light sprinkles on the 20th; a Warm front (Pacific cold front on the 24th) caused the shower total on the 23rd.
Virtually all trees & bushes in my area are now blooming & budding & more flowers are popping up as well; as well as more small patches of green grass.
The maximum on the 20th was at 12:01AM & around 5:10PM & Overall Low-abt. 11:45PM-listed for the 20th (the Morning Low was 47F/8.3C).
Forecast for upcoming week calls for continued seasonally warm temperatures, with the best shower chances--and a cool-down--near the weekend.

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

DATE.......HIGH.........LOW........RAIN
Mar..24..70F/21.1C..55F/12.7C..1.60"/40.6mm
.......25..60F/15.5C..45F/7.2C...---

.......30..62F/16.6C..42F/5.5C...0.15"/3.8mm

This first full week of Spring featured mostly pleasantly warm days, cool & crisp mornings & a couple nice rain events. Showers were courtesy of the passage of a couple of Pacific cold fronts. The cold front on the 30th had a larger rainarea to my North, the frontal boundary in my area having a fairly narrow rainfront. Actually rained twice on the 24th: .10"/2.5mm in early AM rain and then 1.50"/38.1mm in a late-day PM thundershower as the front passed through.
Most everything is blooming & budding; saw redbud trees blooming in town on the 24th, so I guess "Spring is here for sure" (as the saying goes in my part of the US).
Overall High-12:01AM & Overall Low-abt. 10:50PM-listed for the 30th; the gusty WNW/NW (post-frontal) winds made the falling temperatures feel that much colder.
That last cold front will drop the temperatures somewhat the first couple days of the upcoming week (minimums near freezing), but a very nice warm-up will then ensue; with good thundershower chances for Thursday & the weekend. I'm sure the ample rainfall & sunshine will really get the grass greening-up quite rapidly.

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

DATE.......HIGH........LOW.........RAIN
Mar..31..54F/12.2C..34F/1.1C...---
Apr...1..53F/11.6C..32F/0C.....---
........2..66F/18.8C..30F/-1.1C..---
........3..68F/20C....43F/6.1C...TRACE
........4..67F/19.4C..51F/10.5C..0.70"/17.7mm
........5..73F/22.7C..45F/7.2C...---
........6..68F/20C....50F/10C....0.95"/24.1mm

This past week featured a coolish start & warmer finish. Thundershower totals were courtesy of a Pacific cold front (passage early AM on the 4th) and Low-Pressure vortex/Pacific cold front passing to our South on the 6th. Otherwise, the afternoon temperatures were quite pleasant, with abundant sunshine; saw a (harmless) Garter snake sunning itself on my driveway on the afternoon of the 4th. Most Thankfully, any severe weather avoided my area.
Gardening (Veggie & Flower) season is in full-swing here as James' SuperSave Foods has had their outdoor veggie & flower displays (plants for sale) for almost 2 weeks now. As our chances of a frost are just about gone (until late-October/early-November). Am very (VERY) disappointed with our almost snowless Winter season. I talked with one of my fellow church-members (Ron Davis), who lives in the valley (around elev. 1,600FT/~490M ASL) between Black Fork Mountain (to the North) & Rich Mountain (just to his South) and the day Mena had their only measurable Snow of Winter (Jan. 19th), he had 3-4" snow at his house. (They get much more snow & have more foggy days there [in the valleys & atop the mountains] than we do in Mena).
Forecast for upcoming week calls for a few days of very warm temperatures (highs of 80F+/26.6C+) before a cool-down around Thursday and--again--showers forecasted for the weekend.

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

DATE.......HIGH........LOW.........RAIN
Apr...7..78F/25.5C..55F/12.7C..---
........8..78F/25.5C..52F/11.1C..---
........9..87F/30.5C..49F/9.4C...---
......10..84F/28.8C..60F/15.5C..---
......11..75F/23.8C..50F/10.0C..---
......12..69F/20.5C..37F/2.7C...---
......13..53F/11.6C..44F/6.6C...1.10"/27.9mm

Another early-Spring week featuring warm days (esp. so on the 9th & 10th) mixed with cooler tops & mornings--with a good raindump--by weeks' end.
A dry Pacific cold front passed through on the 11th--cloudcover & winds switched from S/SW to W/NW/WNW; a Pacific cold front passed through on the 13th--felt very chilly compared to the early-week warmth. Other areas received more rainfall than my area as the (wide & dry) vortex of the Low-pressure tracked right over my area (I have a good friend who lives just south of Dallas, Texas & they copped 3"/~76.2mm rain from this system). The back edge of the Low-pressure vortex rolled through my area--giving a bit more rain--very early AM on the 14th.
Overall Low-around 10:50PM-listed for the 11th (the Morning Low was a very balmy 63F/17.2C); Overall Low-around 11:40PM-listed for the 13th.
Forecast for upcoming week calls for cooler temperatures early-week with another round of thundershowers by midweek and--hopefully--a warm & dry weekend.

Wishing ALL A Very Happy & Blessed Easter!!! "HE is risen, HE is risen, indeed"!

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

.......20..75F/23.8C..47F/8.3C...---

This past week again featured a roller-coaster temperature profile with ample rainfall. Rain on 14th was in early AM--a carryover of the cold front rainfall of the previous day. A Pacific cold front approached midweek (with a good rainshield ahead of it). The cold front itself passed through very early AM on the 18th, with very heavy rainfall and very close & almost constant lightning for a while. Most Thankfully-again-any severe weather missed my area (other areas nearby copped upwards of 3"/75mm+ rainfall or a little more). The 18th was a day of cold rain & falling temperatures. Very cool and windy--chilly NW/WNW post-frontal winds--on the 19th. Otherwise, most days had plenteous sunshine & very nice afternoon conditions.
Overall High-12:01AM & Overall Low-abt. 11:30PM-listed for the 18th.
Forecast for upcoming week calls for continued warm conditions, with more good thundershower chances by midweek; after that brief cooldown, more warm temperatures by the weekend.

Hoping All Had A Very Happy & Blessed Easter/Resurrection Day!

This past week featured more muggy & humid conditions with a Stationary front/Pacific cold front (passage on the 2nd) bringing the ample raintotals. Quite a large rain-shield ahead of this cold front, and--Most Thankfully--any severe weather of really flooding rains were away from my area. It actually rained twice on the 1st: With 1.90"/48.2mm rain falling in very early AM thundershower, skies actually cleared for a short time in early PM, and I copped a further 0.70"/17.7mm rain in a late PM thundershower.
Overall Low-around 11:30PM-listed for the 4th.
Forecast for upcoming week calls for a similar temperature-pattern with thundershowers forecasted for midweek & later in the weekend.

Hello Folks:
Here's previous weeks' weather in Mena, Arkansas (sorry for delay, waiting until some temperature information became available):

DATE.......HIGH........ LOW.........RAIN
May...5..78F/25.5C..50F/10C....---
........6..79F/26.1C..58F/14.4C..---
........7..81F/27.2C..60F/15.5C..---
........8..73F/22.7C..57F/13.8C..1.25"/31.7mm
........9..73F/22.7C..55F/12.7C..---
......10..55F/12.7C..48F/8.8C...0.10"/2.5mm
......11..60F/15.5C..48F/8.8C...0.50"/12.7mm

This past week felt very warm, but very cool at the weekend. Midweek rain was from passage of a Pacific cold front; this front later stalled out to our South (over the N Gulf of Mexico) and gave us the chilly, foggy, cloudy & showery weather by weeks' end. The conditions then felt really cold (I actually had to put a coat on & turn the heat on in the house!) compared to the wonderful warmth of the previous days.
Although my area copped a nice raindump, other areas copped quite a bit more rain--with flooding conditions in some of those areas.
Overall High-12:01AM-listed for the 10th (the Daytime High was a chilly 54F/12.2C around 2:30PM).
Forecast for the coming week calls for warm & pleasant temperatures with the best rainchances for the weekend.

This past week featured coolish mornings & warm, sunny & humid-feeling afternoons. The passage of a Pacific cold front (early AM on the 19th) caused the good raindump on the 18th; Most Thankfully, any severe weather missed my area & we didn't have much thunder and lightning with the showers, as well. Otherwise, a fairly unremarkable Springtime week.
Forecast for the upcoming week calls for good thundershower/storm chances into mid-week, with continued warm conditions.
