Little Rock, Arkansas – Arkansas is in for a long stretch of sun and record-breaking temperatures.

The warmest Little Rock has gotten so far in 2022 is 85°. We actually hit 85° on three separate occasions (4/24, 4/29, and 5/1).

For those who don’t like the heat, it could be worse. Even though the temperatures will be hot, the humidity won’t be too bad. Dew points will stay in the upper 60s and low 70s. This will lead to feels like temperatures in the upper 90s.
