Record low temperatures chill central Arkansas

By ArkansasOnline

Record low temperatures were recorded across central Arkansas on Thursday morning as cold air continued to push through the state.

In Little Rock, the morning's low temperature of 41 degrees was the chilliest ever recorded so late in the spring, breaking the previous record of 42 degrees set May 23, 1963, the National Weather Service of Little Rock said.

Neighboring North Little Rock set a record low for May 15 of 43 degrees, breaking the previous record of 48 degrees, set in 2011, and marking the third-lowest May temperature recorded since 1975, the meteorologists said.

A record low of 39 degrees in Jacksonville broke the previous record of 44 degrees set in 2011 and tied May 2 for the third-lowest May temperature recorded since 1956, the weather service said.

In Pine Bluff, a 107-year-old record low was broken when the mercury dropped to 42 degrees, and Malvern's reading of 39 degrees tied a record originally set in 1926, the weather service said.

Yesterday's high temperatures were on the low side Wednesday, when Mt. Ida recorded a high of only 56 degrees, which broke the previous record for chilliest high temperature on May 14, which was set in 1878, meteorologists added.

No big surprise. We were overdue for our next Ice Age, it feels great!

I'm with Rubio. Yes, the climate is changing. The climate is always changing. The earth adapts. We call CO2 a "Greenhouse" gas for a reason. Plants love carbon dioxide. Plants love greenhouses. IF our Indonesian and Brazilian "brothers" were not busily cutting out the earth's tropical rainforest "lungs" as fast as they possibly can, any effects of human produced CO2 would be greatly blunted. What I am saying is, any scientific findings that show human activity contributes to climate change and does not place the root cause on the activity of deforestation equally with burning coal, is just socialist BS designed to take down capitalist economies while giving those poor little third world countries a pass. NO to unilateral cuts in coal burning unless the Brazilians and Indonesians also concede to cuts in deforestation. Only a community organizer would accept a unilateral cut that destroyed his countries' economy. Only a fifth columnist would propose such a thing.

I know Thinkfree, our meteorologist can't get a 7 day forecast right half the time.
