....THE CHRISTMAS SNOWSTORM IN PERSPECTIVE...

THE SNOWSTORM ON CHRISTMAS WILL BE REMEMBERED FOR A LONG TIME TO COME...
FOR NOT ONLY EXCESSIVE SNOWFALL...BUT FOR NEAR-BLIZZARD CONDITIONS IN
CENTRAL AND NORTHEAST ARKANSAS. IN FACT...BLIZZARD CONDITIONS WERE MET IN
PARTS OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS...WITH WINDS OF 35-40 MPH...AND VISIBILITIES
REDUCED TO LESS THAN ONE QUARTER MILE IN BLOWING SNOW.

THIS WAS PROBABLY THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE SNOWSTORM OF JANUARY 28TH 1966
WHEN THE STATE SAW NEAR BLIZZARD CONDITIONS. IN THAT STORM...NEAR-BLIZZARD
CONDITIONS WERE FAIRLY WIDESPREAD AT LEAST OVER PORTIONS OF CENTRAL AND
SOUTHERN ARKANSAS. EIGHT TO TWELVE INCHES OF SNOW FELL IN A BAND FROM NEAR
BISMARCK TO EAST OF PINE BLUFF...WITH ALL AREAS OF THE STATE SEEING
MEASURABLE SNOWFALL.

WITH THE CHRISTMAS SNOWSTORM...MEASURABLE SNOW FELL IN MOST OF THE STATE...
RANGING FROM A FEW TENTHS AT HARRISON AND MONTICELLO...TO TEN INCHES OR
MORE IN PORTIONS OF CENTRAL ARKANSAS. THIS STORM HAS SET MANY ALL-TIME
DECEMBER SNOWFALL RECORDS...BOTH DAILY AND MONTHLY...AS WELL AS SEVERAL
ALL-TIME CALENDAR DAY SNOWFALL RECORDS.

AT PERRY...IN PERRY COUNTY...DECEMBER 2012 WAS THE SNOWIEST MONTH ON
RECORD. THE PREVIOUS RECORD WAS 12.0 INCHES...IN FEBRUARY OF 1979.

THE ALL-TIME RECORD DAILY SNOWFALL FOR ARKANSAS DURING THE MONTH OF
DECEMBER WAS 21.0 INCHES...SET AT MONTICELLO ON DECEMBER 31ST 1876. THE
ALL-TIME MONTHLY SNOWFALL RECORD FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER WAS 28.0 INCHES
AT MONTICELLO IN 1876.

THE FOLLOWING IS A LIST OF RECORDS TIED OR BROKEN WITH THIS STORM. PLEASE
REMEMBER THAT ALL DATA IS CONSIDERED PRELIMINARY UNTIL CERTIFIED BY THE
NATIONAL CLIMATIC DATA CENTER IN ASHEVILLE NORTH CAROLINA.

..ALL-TIME CALENDAR DAY SNOWFALL RECORDS TIED OR BROKEN...

(NOTE...THESE STATIONS TAKE OBSERVATIONS IN A 24-HOUR PERIOD ENDING
