New Record Lows Set

The unusually chilly July has gone into the record books in a big way this morning. While we came close to records on Saturday and Sunday morning, the records were broken all over Central Alabama this morning. Here is a release from the NWS in Birmingham showing the new and old records. As I said over the weekend, you don’t often get to use chilly and July in the same sentence, but it sure feels good.
