State Enjoying July Cool Snap

JULY 27, 2004 - Posted at 8:00 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Even though this week's cool weather is rare for July, it's not unheard of.

National Weather Service forecaster John Robinson said records showed similar cool snaps in 1996 and 2000 at the same time in July.

The cool weather is expected to stay in Arkansas through mid-week, when temperatures will rise briefly before another cool front comes in during the weekend.  Robinson said this weekend's front won't be as cool as the one in the beginning of the week.

Temperatures were in the 70s at 5 p.m yesterday in Little Rock, usually the hottest time of the day.

Some northwestern Arkansas towns had temperatures in the 50s.

Robinson said the cool weather was caused by a high loft of low pressure over the area forcing the cool air south to Arkansas.
