...Data for Pine Bluff for Fall 2018...

.Summary...
The warmth of September and October quickly gave way to the cold of
November. This steered the season as a whole to well below average,
and even into record territory, at least for high temperatures.

Due to above average rainfall in October and November, and record
rainfall in September, the season ended up being one of the wettest
falls since records at Pine Bluff began in 1883. There were 35 days
with measurable rainfall, which is the most since 2007, and the 2nd
highest on record for the fall season (behind the 36 days in 2007).

This was the first fall in four years with measurable snowfall, and
the snow was the highest amount during the fall season in 38 years.
There were four days with snowfall, measurable or not, which was the
most since 2014, and the highest number on record for the fall
season. The previous record was three days, which was in 2014.

.Average Temperatures...
The average high temperature was the coldest since 2009, and the
10th coldest on record. The average low temperature was the warmest
since 2016. The average seasonal temperature was the coldest since
2014.

.Rainfall...
This was the wettest fall since 2009, and the 5th wettest on record.

.Snowfall...
This was the snowiest fall since 1980, and the third snowiest fall
on record. Only 1929 had more snow, and this was when 5.0 inches
fell on November 22 of that year.
