Canoe on the Arkansas River
The Arkansas River is a tributary of the Mississippi.
With a length of more than 2,300 kilometers, it flows from Colorado in an easterly direction, only to unite at the Mississippi border with the very well-known Mississippi River of the same name.

Despite its location, Arkansas has a temperate subtropical climate. In the north, where there are some mountains, it is more continental. Hot but humid summers and dry winters characterize the seasons in the region. Due to the subtropical climate and proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, thunderstorms, as well as hurricanes and tornadoes, are some of the region’s natural hazards.
In the Arcane capital of Little Rock, the average temperature of summer weather is around 32 degrees Celsius, and winter temperatures are around 10 degrees Celsius, which is temperate. It is always a bit drier in southern Arkansas than in the rainier north. Snowfalls are not uncommon in winter, but not very productive. The white splendor does not stay for long because of the moderate temperatures.
