HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – As of Sunday morning, Huntsville has recorded 50 consecutive days with low temperatures at or above 70 degrees. This sets a new record, according to the National Weather Service in Huntsville.

The previous record of consecutive days with lows at or above 70 was 49, set back in the summer of 2010.

Our current stretch of warm overnight temperatures likely ends Sunday night into Monday morning with a brief appearance of fall-like weather. Temperatures are expected to drop into the low and middle 60s for two nights as drier air settles into north Alabama.

Tuesday morning is forecast to be the coolest morning of the next seven days. Morning lows might get close to the upper 50s in Fayetteville and Winchester.
