Happy New Year! By the way, if you're keeping score, last week's long-range forecast said we would have snowfall on January 2nd right? Let the record show it did, snow and sleet actually, but very little made it to the ground as it blew in with very cold temps over the weekend. The forecasters weren't wrong, it just wasn't anything we could play in.
This first full week of 2022 we're back to more normal fluctuating temps like most Januarys in the Ark-La-Tex but very dry conditions at least the first part of the week, so if you're planning on getting some yard cleanup done, you should have a few good days to work with.
