BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – It may be hot now, but forecasters say Alabama could soon see another round of records for cool temperatures.
A cold front moving through the state Monday brings the possibility of strong storms to south Alabama. But the National Weather Service says conditions will change quickly.
Daytime heat indexes in the low 100s will give way to overnight lows in the 50s and low 60s by Wednesday.
The National Weather Service says the chill could break records dating as far back as 1889, when Montgomery reached a summertime record low for the date of 66 degrees.
The cooler weather will hang around for a few days, with daytime highs expected in the 80s in central Alabama into the weekend.
A cool spell brought similar, unseasonable temperatures earlier this month.
