Our Hottest Day

| September 5, 2011 @ 9:30 am | 24 Replies

Alabama’s all-time record heat wave was at its height on this date in 1925. Birmingham was recording its third of seven straight days with temperatures over 100 degrees.

On the 5th and 6th, the temperature in the Magic City topped out at 106F. After letting up a bit, the temperature would once again reach the century mark on September 22nd (the latest the Magic City has ever seen 100 degrees.) The high temperatures were made worse by a severe drought.

The headline on the afternoon paper The Birmingham news said: “All Reords Go as Temperature Reaches 106.” The Weather Bureau in Birmingham stated that the reading in the Magic City was the hottest in the country.

The state recorded its hottest temperature ever (112F) at Centreville. It was 108F in Gadsden and 109.5F in Demopolis. It was 105F in Tuscaloosa and 104 in Cullman. Every reporting station in the state of Alabama recorded a high of 100 degrees or higher on this date, an unprecedented event that has never been repeated.

Edgar Horton, the city weatherman said there was no relief in sight. He was calling for a little cloudiness for the following day that might break the hot spell, but that was not to be. Horton called for a continued lack of rain.
