...Date for Little Rock Adams Field for Spring 2017...

.Summary...
Over all, spring was a little over a degree above average. However,
what spared us from a higher number was May, which was the only
month in the season with below average temperatures. More
significantly, this spring was the first in two years with no 90-
degree temperatures.

Even though rainfall was well above average, this was the driest
spring in two years. March was the driest month, and April was the
wettest.

.Seasonal Temperatures...
The average high temperature was the coolest since 2015. The average
low temperature was the coolest since 2014. The average seasonal
temperature was the coolest since 2015.

.Seasonal Rainfall...
Even though rainfall was well above average, and this was the 20th
wettest spring on record, it was also the driest spring since 2014.

.Seasonal Snowfall...
No snow fell for the second spring in a row.
