A warm week is ahead for Chilton County with temperatures reaching the low to mid 90s for the next few days.

According to meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Birmingham Aaron Gleason, the warm temperatures indicate the summer season has arrived.

“We aren’t breaking any record temperatures this week or anything but summer weather is starting to get in full swing,” Gleason said.

Although Tuesday will be warm with a high of 91 degrees, Gleason said Wednesday in Chilton County will be the warmest day of the week with an expected high of 94 degrees.

“Wednesday is definitely going to be hot,” Gleason said.

Rain could return to parts of Chilton County on Thursday with a high of 92 degrees, but Gleason said the majority of rain on Thursday will be in North Alabama.

Friday will be slightly cooler than the rest of the week with a high near 88 degrees, but temperatures will warm back up over the weekend with highs in the low 90s.

“This isn’t unusual for this time of the year because we typically see an increase in temperatures with the summer season,” Gleason said. “It is just getting to that point where it is going to be hot.”
