NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -

A year after Arkansas' second-warmest year on record, the state just concluded its coolest year since 1996.

The National Weather Service office at North Little Rock notes that snow fell in all parts of the state last year. Also noteworthy was an early May storm that brought the latest snowfall on record to sections of the state.

Considerably cooler temperatures occurred in May, late June and the first week of July, and the temperature hit zero at Gilbert on Dec. 7. At the other end of the scale, the highest reading was 104 at Russellville and Fort Smith on July 10. That was the lowest maximum-high temperature in Arkansas since 2002.

The state had ice storms in January, February and December.

Arkansas also had 34 tornadoes, with two fatalities.
