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

DATE......HIGH.........LOW.........RAIN
Sep..3..88F/31.1C..64F/17.7C..---
.......4..90F/32.2C..67F/19.4C..---
.......5..81F/27.2C..58F/14.4C..---
.......6..75F/23.8C..51F/10.5C..---
.......7..80F/26.6C.*48F/8.8C...---
.......8..83F/28.3C..49F/9.4C...---
.......9..85F/29.4C..53F/11.6C..---

*=This Tied the Rec. Low Min. for Date (set in 1988)

For the week of Sep. 3-9: Mena's Avg. Max.: 85.1F/29.5C; Avg. Min.: 62.2F/16.7C

This completely dry late Summer week featured some good warmth, but also some cooler-feeling days (& mornings) as well. A--dry in my area--Canadian cold front passed through on the 5th. That cold front really lowered the humidity levels and made for some good daily temperature spreads. These cooler readings made it hard to believe that we still have nearly 2 weeks left of Summer. IMO, it seems the seasons here this year are about around a month or so ahead of schedule.
The minimum on the 8th was only 1F above the Record Low Maximum for the Date.
Overall Low--around 11:35PM--listed for the 5th.
Forecast for upcoming week calls for very poor rainchances & the tops getting warmer as the week progresses (possibly 90F+/32.2C+).
Still unsure if the steering winds will push the remnants of ex-Hurricane Irma in my direction (to the West).

For the week of Sep. 10-16: Mena's Avg. Max.: 83.1F/28.3C; Avg. Min.: 60.2F/15.6C

This last full week of Summer--Autumn/Fall officially arrives here in the NH on the 22nd--featured fairly variable temperatures and continued dry conditions (as of today--the 18th--I've recorded no measureable rain here this month & none for 26 straight days). Needless to say, the area lawns are looking quite parched & fairly brown-colored in places.
The upper steering winds blew the remnants of ex-Hurricane/Tropical Storm/Tropical Depression Irma over my area on the 12th. Very light rain just missed me, the more widespread & heavier rain was to my E & SE. The thicker cloudcover and cool NE winds made it a very chilly late-Summer day (never thought I'd have to wear a heavy long-sleeved shirt in late-Summer!).
I like to keep up with the 1st time I see this (as per the US Daily Weather Feature map): On the 14th, there was an area of expected Rain/Snow mix in the US & Canada Rocky Mountains. On the 15th, there was a rather small area of expected Snow in the southwestern mountains of Montana (I guess it's getting to be that time of year). Our decreasing daylight is very noticeable: currently, sunset here is at 7:20PM.
Forecast for upcoming week calls for more Summerlike warmth (tops of 90F+/32.2C+) and humid minimums with the best rainchances (30%) for Thursday & Saturday.

For the week of Sep. 17-23: Mena's Avg. Max.: 81.2F/27.3C; Avg. Min.: 58.2F/14.5C

A fairly warm week with continued dry conditions. Autumn/Fall officially arrived here in the NH on the 22nd. Some mornings started mostly-to-partly cloudy and giving way to mostly sunny conditions by the early PM hours. A couple days had day-long cumulus cloudcover, giving brief relief from the hot sunshine.
Forecast for the upcoming week calls for fairly good rainchances--and a bit of a cool-down--by mid-week. My area could really, really do with a nice raindump. I imagine we'll be in a Countywide Burn Ban before much longer.

For the week of Sep. 24-30: Mena's Avg. Max.: 79.2F/26.2C; Avg. Min.: 55.7F/13.1C

Well--HALLELUJAH! Very Thankful for the rainfall this past week; the--light & spotty--showers were due to a Stationary Front to our North early-week and from a Pacific Cold Front on the 27th. Felt very chilly (post-frontal) on the 28th, with day-long solid cloudcover & coolish NW/WNW breezes (so, Definitely feeling like Autumn/Fall; esp. with the cooler mornings and lower humidity values).
Otherwise, the days were mostly sunny & fairly pleasant; perfect for any outdoor activity.
Forecast for upcoming week calls for similar temperatures (highs of 80F+/26.6C+ and mornings of 60F+/15.5C+) with very good rainchances early-week and fair rainchances late in the weekend.

For the week of Oct. 1-7: Mena's Avg. Max.: 77.2F/25.1C; Avg. Min.: 53.0F/11.6C

An Upper-Level Disturbance gave the very nice raindump mid-week. Felt very cool on the 3rd as the Maximum was at 12:01AM & around 4:30PM. Otherwise, the days were warm & pleasant with lower humidity values--typical early-Autumn/Fall weather. More trees around town are starting to shed their leaves, while other trees' leaves are starting to undergo the color-change.
Forecast for upcoming week calls for fair thundershower chances--and a cooler shot of air--for late Monday night into Tuesday--followed by mostly dry conditions and warmer temperatures.

For the week of Oct. 8-14: Mena's Avg. Max.: 75.0F/23.8C; Avg. Min.: 50.1F/10C

Another nice dump of rain--along with cooler conditions--as a Pacific cold front passed through on the 10th. The 10th felt especially cool as the temperatures slowly fell most of the day (Daytime High was only 65F/18.3C at the 7:18AM sunrise); skies mostly cleared by around 1PM, but with an accompanying chilly WNW breeze. A fairly rapid warm-up then ensued over the remainder of the week. Another Pacific cold front would hit us on Sunday the 15th and the pre-frontal warmth--aided by warm Southerly breezes--brought record-breaking heat to my area on the 13th & 14th (some locations in Arkansas were above 90F/32.2C+ for tops on those days). I'm enjoying the warmth while we have it; although the cooler mornings & pleasant afternoons seems to have put an end (however temporary) to the plethora of mosquitos in my area. The cooler weather & shorter daylight hours (sunset is currently near 6:40PM) have already started the color-change on some of the local trees' leaves.
Since the 12th, Polk County has been under a Countywide Burn Ban. Hopefully, we'll get a larger raindump this upcoming weekend; along with another shot of cooler air.

For the week of Oct. 15-21: Mena's Avg. Max.: 72.2F/22.3C; Avg. Min.: 47.5F/8.6C

A pleasant early-Autumn week with somewhat variable temperatures and a bit of rain early-week & late-week. A Pacific cold front brought the rain (the shower-line mostly fell apart upon reaching my area) on the 15th & the scant raintotal on the 21st was a thin & broken line of showers well ahead of another Pacific cold front (which hit us just before 2AM on Sunday the 22nd).
Overall High--12:01AM & Overall Low--around 11:15PM, listed for the 15th (Daytime Maximum was 69F/20.5C around 2:25PM)--a cooler-feeling day with dampness & slowly falling temperatures.
Forecast for upcoming week calls for nice warmth until just after mid-week and then another strong cold front & another fairly good cool-down--we could see minimums at freezing or below by next weekend.
