Climate

Little Rock has a humid subtropical climate, usually humid summers, but subject to drought, primarily in late summer. Summers are usually hot, occasionally extremely hot; winters are short and cool but with marked temperature variations, as the area is subject to alternating incursions of warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico and cold, dry air from Canada. The Little Rock area has nearly 50 inches of precipitation per year, on average. Little Rock experiences a prolonged spring wet season, with heavy rainfall a distinct possibility from March to May, and a secondary wet season peaking in November and December.
