Public Information Statement

Statement as of 5:29 AM CDT on August 01, 2014


... July 2014... one of the coldest on record in Arkansas...

July proved to be rather cool over much of Arkansas. This time of
year... blocking high pressure tends to be the dominant weather
pattern in the mid south and much of the southern United States.
However... this year... the high pressure was shunted southwest and west
of the region... allowing northwest and northerly upper level wind flow
to drive several systems through the state. Much cooler air and abundant
cloud cover tended to follow these systems. The result was a month which
saw temperatures well below the 30-year average in much of the state.

At many locations... these temperatures made for the coolest July on
record... be it average high... low or monthly temperature. Preliminary
indications are that... statewide... this has been the coldest July
since 1967... and quite likely the coldest on record. A final determination
on this ranking will come after final quality control of data has been
made by the National climatic data center.

In terms of average temperature... this has been the coldest July in
over 100 years at Mountain Home... Hardy... Pine Bluff and Camden. July
2014 at several other locations... such as Little Rock... may not have ended
up ranking as the all-time coldest... but was definitely in the top five
coldest.

All data listed below are preliminary until final quality control
by the National climatic data center in Asheville North Carolina.
