The National Weather Service says that last month will go down as the warmest Arkansas March ever — until the next one, at least — with 46 monitoring stations around the state logging record average temperatures.

Little Rock posted an average March temperature of 64.3 degrees, the highest since records started being kept in 1879. Highest avg. temp in the whole state? Saint Charles, at 66.9 degrees.

Break out the sunscreen, kids. Something tells me this summer is gonna be a scorcher. Full list of stations posting record-setting March average temps on the jump...
