April Outlook

Updated official long range forecast from the Climate Prediction Center:


Near average precipitation is expected for our area this April.   However, Western Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma is on the edge of where below normal precipitation is in the forecast.   The center of a warm and dry April is centered over West Texas.

So it appears we will see near normal precipitation and either near normal or above normal temperatures this month. 

We average nearly 4″ of rain for the month of April.   Of course, April is known for its thunderstorms.   There will be a risk of severe thunderstorms on Monday.  Details to be ironed out on exact timing and extent of severity, but this is a topic that we will be talking more about in the coming days.
