Hot Springs and North Little Rock both set record lows Wednesday, with their temperatures dipping into the low 60s, National Weather Service officials said.

Temperatures plummeted across the state as a cold front swept through Arkansas this week. Many cities, such as Jacksonville, tied with their past lows, meteorologist Julie Lesko with the weather service in North Little Rock said. Hot Springs and North Little Rock have recorded new temperature lows this week.

A temperature of 60 degrees was recorded at Hot Springs Memorial Field Airport, which replaced a 1967 low of 64 degrees, Lesko said.

Weather service officials in North Little Rock on Thursday recorded a morning low of 62 degrees. The previous record for North Little Rock was 65 degrees, set in 1976.

The cold weather brought with it heavy rain, but not as much as expected, forecasters said. The heaviest rain was focused on Texas and Louisiana.

The weather service said it expects most of the flash flood warnings issued early this week will be canceled before the scheduled expiration times.

    Al Gore is sitting back saying I told you so. Ignorance as to what global warming is, baffles me. Henry P., suggest you learn about it before you speak. Warnings as to global warming/ climate change was stated/confirmed back in the late 1800's.
