Record highs possible through the workweek

But could we cool down by the weekend?!

When does this record heat end?!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Surprise, surprise... we broke another record high! Sunday’s high temperature reached 98°, crushing the old one of 96° (1904). This is the fourth day in a row where we set a new record high temp, and more could be on the way!

Rain will be nowhere to be found over the next several days, unfortunately. The ridge is continuing to build, limiting all chances for rain and keeping temperatures hot. We have the potential to tie or break a record each afternoon through Friday.

Could there be relief in sight?! It looks like a “backdoor” cold front could work its way into the state by Sunday, potentially bringing our temperatures down into the 80s. It’s a long way out and things could change, but we’ll cross our fingers and keep a close eye on it.
