…only unsuitable clothing.”
If Mr. Wainwright were in Arkansas today he might be wearing as little as possible seeing as how afternoon highs will again be near or in the triple digits. I believe our level of concern is compounded by the fact that our rainfall deficit continues to worsen with each passing day.
It’s been more than a week since we’ve seen rain in Northwest Arkansas and about that same amount of time in the River Valley.
The deficit for Fayetteville stands at 9.78 while Fort Smith’s is 2.47. In the past almost 40 years, this is the second driest year to date.
We will continue to look for (and hope for) a change in our weather pattern but right now it seems that Mother Nature is staying the course.
