It's July? Cool Morning Across Arkansas

Temps in 50's and 60's, but warming up by afternoon to 70's and 80's.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - Someone might want to tell Mother Nature it's July.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Little Rock reports that this morning's low of 65 at North Little Rock was the coolest July 1st since 1984 and the second coolest on record. The coolest July 1st was 64 back in 1976.

Fox 16 Meterologist Greg Dee shared his reaction via Twitter, tweeting this:
Welcome to July? 50s on the map this morning. Some places may stay in the upper 70s this PM.

On Facebook, he posted:
Is this for real!? 50s on the map this morning in the state. Upper 70s to the mid 80s this afternoon with a few sct'd showers.

Fayetteville also woke up to cool temps. Clint Boone, meteorologist with our sister station KNWA tweeted:
What a beautiful July morning! We tied a record low from 1976 in Fayetteville at 55. We may set more record lows this week. Expect highs in the upper 70s today with north winds at 10-15. Enjoy!

Interesting Note (from NWS Twitter):
Today in 1879, the Little Rock Signal Service (later NWS) office opened. With that, temperature records were started in Little Rock.
