MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Another day, another broken record. Montgomery Regional Airport recorded a high of 98 degrees, that broke the old record of 97. That is our sixth consecutive day of tying or breaking heat-related records. We also finished September with 0.05″, which makes this the driest September on record.
And, the average daytime high this month was 97.0, which is the hottest September on record.
Expect more record heat through the rest of this week; afternoon highs will reach 95-100 degrees each day, with no appreciable rain chance.
The pattern will change by early next week; the upper ridge will break down as a series of cold fronts moves through the Deep South. A change to coolER, wettER weather is likely, but exactly HOW cool and wet the pattern becomes is still TBD.
