Thursday was the start of record heat in Huntsville this week. Huntsville hit 95 Thursday afternoon breaking the previous record of 94. This afternoon and each afternoon the next 7 days, record highs will be possible. Highs in the mid 90s are possible each afternoon with isolated areas warming to the upper 90s. This puts temperatures at 15-20 degrees above normal for this time of the year the next 7 days.
Unfortunately the dry pattern continues for North Alabama for the foreseeable future. Other than a few stray showers or storms in the afternoons, most areas will either stay dry or see less than 0.10" over the next 7 days.
