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

DATE.......HIGH........LOW........RAIN
July..1..87F/30.5C..70F/21.1C..TRACE
........2..97F/36.1C..69F/20.5C..TRACE
........3..98F/36.6C..66F/18.8C..TRACE
........4..90F/32.2C..69F/20.5C..---
........5..91F/32.7C..69F/20.5C..0.10"/2.5mm
........6..95F/35C....69F/20.5C..---
........7..93F/33.8C..65F/18.3C..---

For the week of July 1-7: Mena's Avg. Max.: 88.4F/31.3C: Avg. Min.: 66.7F/19.2C

This past week featured above normal warmth--more typical of mid-Summer. Scant raintotals were from heating showers which formed just to the South, North & East of Mena, and I just caught the outer edges of those rainareas. The "Bermuda High" drifted somewhat to the North, hence the rainareas (going clockwise around the bottom of the circulation of the High pressure dome) were going from West to East--the opposite of the normal movement. A Canadian cold front actually passed through my area on the 7th. Actually rained twice here on the 5th: A TRACE in a very brief shower that fell just before 12NOON & .10"/2.5mm in a slightly heavier shower that fell around 6:15PM. A couple towns in Arkansas actually topped out at 100F/37.7C during the first part of the week.
Forecast for upcoming week calls for more heat with very good rainchances on several days in the week.

Hello WANDJINA G'vale & ALL:

(Sorry for delay, a close lightning strike on the 12th took out the modem of my PC--I was literally seconds from unplugging my PC--and the replacement modem didn't arrive until a few hours ago [Tuesday evening]).

Here's previous weeks' weather for Mena, Arkansas:

DATE........HIGH.........LOW.........RAIN
July...8..89F/31.6C..66F/18.8C..---
.........9..89F/31.6C..71F/21.6C..---
.......10..91F/32.7C..67F/19.4C..0.40"/10.1mm
.......11..93F/33.8C..67F/19.4C..0.40"/10.1mm
.......12..93F/33.8C..66F/18.8C..0.65"/16.5mm
.......13..92F/33.3C..66F/18.8C..---
.......14..92F/33.3C..69F/20.5C..---

For the week of July 8-14: Mena's Avg. Max.: 89.2F/31.7C; Avg. Min.: 67.0F/19.4C

Finally (and Most Thankfully)--after being barely missed by heating thundershower cells over the past few weeks--my area had a few heating showers form nearby & drift over my area (cells were moving to the W or SW/SSW). I'm Very Thankful for every drop of rain (just missed showers to our N on the 9th), the pleasant coolness was sometimes short-lived, as after the cells passed, the clouds would quickly clear out and the sun would be blazingly hot; in fact, my area was in a Heat Advisory--for Heat Index values of 105F+/40.5C+ for the last half of the week.
Forecast for upcoming week calls for fair chances for heating showers early-week, then hot maximums (approaching 100F/37C) and very poor rainchances afterwards.

@WANDJINA G'vale: Hey! Thanks Much for your interest. Actually this year is turning out quite warm relative to the normals and the early-year rain surplus is diminishing due to the recent & acute dryness. Have A Great One, Good Buddy!

Kind Wishes & Take Care~~~Wet Snow

Hello Folks:
Getting a tad warm in my area of the US:
At 5:35PM today (almost 20 minutes ago)--Thursday--Mena's Intermountain Municipal Airport reported a Temperature of 100F/37.7C; with a Dew Point of 72F/22.2C (40.84% Humidity), giving a Heat Index of 111.78F/44.3C! While this may not seem like much, our elevation is almost 1,200FT/almost 366M ASL. The actual temperature is around 95-98F/35-36.6C. Aaahhh, the Good Old "Dog Days of Summer".
Looks like several Date Records for High Temperatures will be tied/broken over the next several days. Keeping my eyes on the US Weather Records site over the next number of days.

Kind Wishes & Take Care~~~Wet Snow
