Not Too Long Ago We Had Record-Breaking Low Temperatures

Around the middle of October, we experienced some below-average temperatures. On October 18, 2022, Tuscaloosa’s 56-degree temperature broke the old record low maximum temperature for October 18th which was 58 degrees in 1966,” said the National Weather Service in Birmingham.

Also, breaking low-temperature records happened in Birmingham as well, hitting 54 degrees, breaking a 1955 record of 55 degrees. Plus Montgomery was at 58 degrees breaking a 60-degree record from 2009.

Get ready for, what my mother would call “getting sick” weather.


James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said, "we will be very close to a new record high Monday as temperatures rise into the low 80s. Much cooler air arrives over the latter half of the week, and by the following weekend, (November 12-13) highs drop into the 50s, and lows well down in the 30s. For now, most of the week looks dry.”
