There is no doubt, this is the hottest start to October on record in North Alabama and a lot of the surrounding area. Huntsville International Airport recorded the fifth 100ºF temperature of 2019 at 2:10 PM Thursday. That’s the record for the day, month and season.
There are a LOT of records around Alabama on Thursday, and we’ll be close to the records on Friday; however, it won’t be to this level again this season…thankfully.
There’s good news ahead! A slight drop in temperature takes us below records for Friday and Saturday, then a cold front actually brings RAIN and makes it feel like October early next week.
