Episode Narrative A large ridge of high pressure, combined with very dry ground from the recent drought, combined to produce the hottest month on record across Central Alabama in the month of August. The core of the heat wave started around August 4th, when the temepartures first topped the 100 degree mark in several cities. The heat reached its peak August 10th through the 15th, as the mercury climbed above 105 degrees to as high as 109 degrees. Daily record maximum temperatures were broken or tied on 11 days in Anniston, 10 days in Birmingham, 12 days in Montgomery, and 14 days in Tuscaloosa, and all cities broke or tied their August maximum temperature records. At least 408 people required medical treatment due to the heat, and 11 people died due to heat-related illness.
