The fog continues to thin out this morning with another bright blue sky overhead. There is a good chance we could tie or set record highs today. Temperatures have already rebounded into the low 70s and we’re forecasting mid 80s during the afternoon. The record high for Tuscaloosa and Anniston is 85° from 1963. The record high for Birmingham is 88° from 1940.
October is a month that can bring some major temperature swings to our area. On Saturday morning we woke up to temperatures in the upper 30s in many areas and now we are talking about record level heat. A cold front will sweep across the region on Wednesday and this will be followed by another cool down next weekend.
