Cool July Temperatures

I just got home from the beach to Huntsville, Alabama. At 5:50 p.m. on July 20, 2009 the temperature here is 77.4 degrees. I feel like I accidentally bypassed Huntsville and ended up in Canada. The low here this morning was 58 degrees.

J.B. Elliott of Alabamawx.com posted his usual exhaustive list of low temperatures from this morning. Here are the coolest readings he could find:

49 DeSoto State Park (lowest official low I could find)
51 Broomtown
52 Hytop Agricultural Station, Scrougeout, Crossville, Cottondale
53 Guin, Muscadine, Munford, McCalla
54 Camp Hill, Lafayette, Sylacauga, Townley, Cullman Airport

At least nine sites in Alabama set record lows this morning. Here is Meteorologist Brian Peters' post on this event.
