Birmingham’s Hot Weather Extremes

It is HOT today, and there is another heat alert advising people to be cautious, but it IS July. So thought we’d take a look at some of Birmingham’s weather extremes throughout its weather history.

The hottest recorded temperature in Birmingham, Alabama history was a scorching 107 degrees Fahrenheit which occurred on July 29th, 1930. But it reached:

  • 106 on July 13, 1980
  • 106 on July 29, 1952
  • 106 on July 25, 1952 and
  • 106 on July 12, 1930.

Take a look at some more Birmingham extremes HERE. A special thanks to the Hostetler brothers. They created this site using U.S. government aggregate data in response to anecdotal stories from their parents about the extremely cold weather while students at the University of Michigan.

Maybe the upper 90’s in July are not so extreme after all! Stay cool…
