...Many Locations in Arkansas Recorded the Coldest Temperatures in Years This
Morning...

Low temperatures in much of the state this morning were extremely cold, thanks to an
Arctic airmass in place. Temperatures as cold as -7 were recorded in the north, and
single digits were recorded as far south as the Louisiana border. Many locations
recorded their coldest temperatures in a number of years. In much of central and
southern Arkansas, this was the coldest airmass since February of 1996, or December
of 1989. While these temperatures were not all-time records or monthly all-time
records, several locations did set or tie daily record low temperatures for January
17th.
