Today was one of our hottest days of the entire year; Montgomery reached a high temperature of 96 degrees, and there was an unofficial report of 102 degrees at Vaiden Field, just south of Marion in Perry County. Blistering heat will continue tomorrow, with highs again reaching the low to mid 90s.
Temperatures will slowly transition into the lower 90s late week and into the weekend. It’s slightly better, but still running well above normal for the middle of September. The first day of Fall officially arrives Saturday (insert eye roll here). Rain chances in the coming days never climb out of isolated territory, so you’ll have to roll the dice each day and hope you hit one of those isolated storms.
