BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The July chill is setting records for
low temperatures across Alabama.
The National Weather Service said at least nine cities in
central Alabama had their lowest recorded temperatures ever for
July 20 on Monday morning. All had overnight lows in the mid- to
upper 50s. Pinson got down to 55 degrees, six degrees cooler than
the previous low of 61 in 1962.
It was just as cool in the Tennessee Valley region, and
overnight lows reached the mid-60s as far south as the coast.
Temperatures are supposed to remain cooler than normal for a few
more days, with a warmup expected later in the week.
