NLR breaks cold-temperature record

Temperatures in North Little Rock reached record breaking lows Thursday night around midnight when a cold front chilled the air to 43 degrees.

The previous record low of 48 degrees had stood since 2011.

Temperatures have been dropping all across the state, and according to the National Weather Service, three out of the last four years have seen widespread cold reaching record-breaking points in many areas.

Thursday in Marshall, Waldron, Booneville, Camden, Mount Ida and Des Arc record lows in May held for 90 to 100 years were broken as the cold front settled in.

Mount Ida’s cold record temperature — held since 1878 — was broken Wednesday when the temperature reached 56 degrees, the lowest in 136 years.
