Rain Continues Through Early Wednesday; Dry And Chilly Wednesday Night

As promised, widespread rain covers most of central and south Alabama through the middle of the day. The widespread rain continues for much of the afternoon, this evening, and overnight tonight. However, the rain probably won’t be as widespread/continuous after midnight. Temperatures don’t budge much this afternoon or overnight, with highs today in the low to mid 70s and lows…

It was a mostly cloudy and seasonably cool start to the week. There were a few showers around this morning, but rain wasn’t widespread today. However, the mostly cloudy sky hung around all day, and the clouds aren’t going anywhere tonight. Temperatures were seasonable, warming into the upper 70s or higher across most of the area. Some rain is moving…

Mostly Cloudy With A Few Showers Sunday

It was a mostly cloudy but cooler start to the weekend. Temperatures started off in the 60s this morning, and areas west of I-65 stayed in the 60s much of the day. Meanwhile, temperatures in southeast Alabama warmed into the 80s. The contrast was due to the slow progression of a cold front that entered west Alabama last night. It’s…

Mostly Cloudy And Cool With Some Rain This Weekend

It was another very warm October afternoon in central and south Alabama. Temperatures warmed into the mid and upper 80s with a few low 90s in the mix. It was sunny to mostly sunny from start to finish, but we may not see a whole lot of sunshine over the next several days. A cold front is now crossing into…

A Cold Front And Some Much-Needed Rain Monday

Sunday’s weather was finally a little different across central and south Alabama. It wasn’t as hot as the record-setting month of September or the first handful of days in October. Instead, high temperatures “only” rose into the upper 80s to low 90s this afternoon. The sky was partly to mostly cloudy most of the day, and there were a handful…

A Taste Of Fall Finally On The Way

The record heat streak finally ended in Montgomery this afternoon. After ten consecutive days of tying or breaking the record high temperature, Montgomery “only” hit 97° today. The record high for October 5th is 99° from 1954. Were it not for an isolated thunderstorm early this afternoon, the temperature certainly could have jumped an extra two degrees. Montgomery picked up…

Record Heat Finally Ends This Weekend

It’s unfortunately become very common lately, but Montgomery hit another record high temperature Friday afternoon. The temperature reached at least 101°, easily surpassing the previous record of 97° from 1954. The record-tying/record-breaking heat streak is now ten days in a row in Montgomery. Fortunately, we’ll see the record high temperature streak come to an end this weekend. However, Saturday is…

Record Heat Likely Through Friday

It was another record-setting day in Montgomery. The high temperature rose to at least 99°, crushing the old record of 95° from 1954. The extreme early October heat continues several more days; the next three days through Friday likely feature new record highs in Montgomery. There were a few tiny, isolated downpours this afternoon. Outside of a brief, rogue shower…

Several Afternoons Of Record Heat Still Ahead

The weekend featured new record high temperatures for September 28th and 29th. Saturday’s high temperature of 97° broke the previous record of 96° from 1986.
