Hot weather pattern continuing a few more weeks

Hot weather pattern continuing a few more weeks

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Record and near-record highs across north Alabama Friday afternoon.

Highs were around 100 degrees and in case you are wondering, this September has been a little warmer than September 2018. The average high through Sept. 13 was 91 degrees last year. This year we have averaged a high of 95.6 degrees.

We have several more 90 degree days to get through before our weather pattern begins to change. Right now it looks like we are at least two weeks away before the pattern begins to change.

Rain chances will remain low but not out. Isolated storms will pop up on the afternoon and some could be strong enough to produce some significant lightning, heavy rain and strong gusty winds.

Highs will back off into the lower 90s into the weekend with morning lows around 68. We expect more middle to upper 90s early next week.

There are signs leading to a back door cold front late next week. If this happens we expect a few more clouds and showers and highs in the 80s Thursday into Friday.
