The long-range forecast for the Texarkana is calling for slightly above normal temperatures and above-normal rainfall.

The Farmer's Almanac is so full of information. From basic weather forecasting which is very accurate by the way. To when is the best time to plant in your vegetable garden. I remember my parents keeping a copy of the Farmers Almanac for as long as I can remember. Here is what the Farmers Almanac had to say about the winter for the United States this year.

Winter will be warmer than normal, on average, especially across the north. The coldest periods will be in early and mid-December and in early to mid- and late January.

Here is what they had to say about Texas and Arkansas for the next few months. September will be cooler and drier than normal with temps about 2 degrees below normal and rainfall totals being 1 inch below normal. In October the temps will be slightly lower than normal and rainfall totals will be above normal.

If you are curious the Almanac forecasts are over 80 percent accurate which is way better than most weather apps or weather folks at forecasting in this area. So prepare for more heat but about average rain totals.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
