Garrett’s Blog: Heaviest Rain Keeps Missing Northwest Arkansas

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

It’s rained 7 out of the last 14 days in Fayetteville. 50% of the time! But, each time it rains… it just hasn’t been giving us much heavy rain. 


Compare and contrast the rainfall on the map to central Arkansas. Particularly, Russellville where 1/2 a foot of rainfall has fallen so far this month! Russellville is just 80 miles to the southeast of Fayetteville but the rain totals are significantly higher due to the more southerly track the storm systems have followed.

The cold pattern we’re in will hold for much of the week with the next chance for rain or snow on Thursday morning.
