Air Liquide/Australia Outlook

August/September Discussion August 15th brought peak heat of the month for northern Arkansas. The heat was forced just-ahead of an approaching cold front which settles south of Arkansas the next 7-10 days and focuses a heavy rain episode for Texas to southern Arkansas while in that rain zone and just-north temperatures trend much cooler. Extreme heat weather is gone in Arkansas. The cooler trend also includes September as CDD forecasts are cutback. Unusual heat is not expected in September.
