Arkansas Climate & Weather

Arkansas Climate and Weather

The climate in Arkansas is characterised by four distinct, yet temperate, seasons. It is far enough south to have extremely hot, humid summers, during which thunderstorms occur quite frequently. Arkansas does border the so-called 'Tornado Alley', and severe tornadoes have struck in the past, most often in the spring months of May and June. Spring and autumn are the best time to visit Arkansas, being particularly mild and pleasant. Winters are chilly, but not unbearably so, and while snow is not uncommon, it is seldom excessive.
