The next time we see temperatures this low will likely be in October. Today will feature sunshine in full supply with a high in the mid 70s. We stay dry over the weekend with lots of sunshine… the high tomorrow will be close to 80, followed by low 80s Sunday.

NEXT WEEK: Look for rising heat and humidity levels as an upper ridge builds across the Deep South. Monday will stay mostly dry with only isolated showers, then we will have some risk of “widely scattered, mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms” on a daily basis Tuesday through Friday, much like summer. The most widespread rain remains west of Alabama during the week, and afternoon highs will be mostly in the mid 80s, close to seasonal averages. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 1923: An early morning violent estimated F5 tornado cut a 45-mile path of destruction through Howard and Mitchell counties in Texas. 23 people lost their lives and 250 sustained injuries. The path width of the tornado reached 1.5 miles at one point, and entire farms were “wiped off the face of the earth.” The First Baptist Church in Colorado City, Texas became an emergency hospital for tornado victims.

ON THIS DATE IN 2014: Three EF-0 tornadoes touched down across Alabama… they came in Clay, Tallapoosa, and Bullock counties. Damage was mostly confined to trees.
