Heat and Humidity in Alabama

I have been on vacation and have taken a bit of a break from posting. The story this week in Alabama has the heat. While I was in Chicago, temperatures were in the mid 50's while the boys and I attended a White Sox game. Highs have been well into the 90's in Alabama and even the mornings have been very warm and humid. It has been one of those weeks in which it felt like you walked into an oven as soon as you took a step outside. Speaking of ovens, WAFF 48 meteorologist Brad Travis used the occasion to bake cookies in his car!

Yesterday's record high for Huntsville of 104 was not in jeopardy. The high at the Huntsville International Airport was "only" 95. But we did set a record.....

While I was in Chicago, storms peppered Alabama on a regular basis. Daniel Lamb posted a very good summary of the storm events on the NSSTC Weather blog.
