Records Fall On Monday, More Likely To Be Set Today

| October 1, 2019 @ 9:22 am

Six official National Weather Service reporting stations set new record high temperatures on Monday, and with the heat bubble remaining parked over the top of Central Alabama, we may see more fall this afternoon. Here is the list of records set on Monday:

Anniston set a new record high of 98 degrees on Monday breaking the previous record of 94 set back in 1904.

Birmingham set a new record high of 98 degrees on Monday breaking the previous record of 95 set back in 1904.

Montgomery set a new record high of 98 degrees on Monday breaking the previous record of 97 set back in 1904.

Tuscaloosa tied the record high of 98 degrees on Monday which was originally set back in 1954.

Huntsville and Muscle Shoals got in on the action as well…

Huntsville set a new record high of 97 degrees on Monday breaking the previous record of 95 set back in 1926.

Muscle Shoals set a new record high of 98 degrees on Monday breaking the previous record of 94 set back in 1904.


Record highs that are in danger of falling for today:
Anniston … 93 (1954)
Birmingham … 94 (1919)
Montgomery … 95 (1954)
Tuscaloosa … 95 (1954)
Huntsville … 95 (1926, 1954)
Muscle Shoals … 92 (1926, 1933, 1941)

Forecast highs for those same locations:
Anniston … 96
Birmingham … 97
Montgomery … 97
Tuscaloosa … 97
Huntsville … 99
Muscle Shoals … 98

Skies will be mostly sunny throughout the day and any clouds that do form with the heating of the day will do very little in providing any heat relief. Looks like all of Central Alabama will remain dry today as there is no moisture to work with or any lifting mechanism. The good news is that rain chances and cooler temperatures are looking likely by the second half of the weekend and into the start of next week.
