Great Arctic Blast of 1983

Back in 1983, there was BIG blast of cold air in Region 8! The above image is the climate log from KAIT that month. Click the image to enlarge and look at the coooold weather! While we are going into the 50s and 60s today, they were in the 40s and 30s and about to enter a streak of sub freezing temperatures! Some of the numbers to highlight in the image above are:

  • December 19, 1983: High 15, Low: 8
  • Christmas Eve, 1983: High: 6, Low: -1
  • Christmas Day. 1983: High: 13, Low: -5 on Christmas morning!!!

Here are some more climate logs from December of 1983. Click on them and check them out. This next one is from Paragould:
And finally, here's one from Pocahontas. Brrrr, -8 is COLD:
I hope you enjoyed looking back at the VERY cold December of 1983! It's neat to look back at the old climate logs.

Have a great day!
